Los Gatos Hike and Picnic

Bring your lunch and we will hike on St. Joseph's Trail to the top of the hill overlooking the Santa Cruz mountains. We will start on the Los Gatos Creek trail on Main Street next to the bridge (there is an entrance there) at 10:30 am taking the Manzanita trail, and leave promptly at 10:40. Stragglers can catch up from the map at the link below:

This is a fairly short hike, about 5 ½ miles, but parts are a bit steep so you should be in fairly good shape. Bring plenty of water, appropriate comfortable shoes, a hat, sunscreen, your lunch, a smile, and enjoy getting to know the fun members of your group. There are a lot of open stretches, so don't forget the hat!

The actual hike takes about two hours, so the total event time will be 2 ½ to 3 hours depending on how much time we spend admiring the wonderful 360 degree views from the top.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
