Hike at Joaquin Miller Park

Meet at Lake Merritt BART to carpool at 2:30pm or at the trail head (see map link below) at 3pm.  If you meet us there, know that you will have to drive past the designated spot on the map and turn around so that you can park on the other side of the road.  As you drive up, you will see all the cars parked.  At this entrance we'll have a choice of three trails: Big Trees, Sequoia Bayview, or Palos Colorados. There will be some up/downhill so wear close-toed shoes with traction.  Bring water and a snack.  It's probably silly to plan a hike this time of year but oh well!  If the weather sucks, I'll cancel, but maybe we'll get a nice sunny day or at least mystical cloudy day.

    Hey, I'm parked in the lake merritt lot if anyone still needs a ride. I'm in a black toyota corrolla with a bike rack on top. Holla at me if you need a lift. I'll roll out around 2:45 if I don't hear anything.

    Hey Queers, two spots just freed up in my car. Look out for a black toyota matrix with a "Meetup" sign in a window and a pensive girl in the front.

    Hey Emily, is the place you are talking about at "10040 Skyline Blvd"? That is the address that google maps creates when I drop a pin at a place where all 3 trails meet.

    Hey, I'll see y'all at the park. But, the little marker thing on the map seems off-- are we meeting at the Sequoia Bayview Trail Trailhead on Skyline Blvd?

    Forecast: Sunny. Hiking is always a good idea. I live right by the park, but if we're in a jam and need rides, let me know and I'll come get you! Nancy[masked]

    either "I'll meet you at the park"
