    I had a great time and met so many nice people. Bummer about the cars...I work at the TMC so I parked in my regular place and walked over. The after party at Hugo's was great too--what a view! The only sort of eye opener for me was what I felt like after 10 miles mainly on concrete and asphalt. I do 10 miles on gravel or dirt often and feel tired but good. My shins are still angry at me. I don't generally like hiking off the trail because of the compaction damage but next time I do this trail I'm definitely using the "next to" option Hugo and others recommended. Thanks all!

    The hike was great. The only problem I had was making it back to my car and finding that it had been vandalized. My back left passenger window was broken out as well as two others. I was able to file a police report, filed glass claim to insurance, get my vehicle to the dealership and received a loaner. It's sad when you work hard for the things you get and other find reason to take your thunder.

      Cheril.....I am so sorry to read this. That is the last thing you want to see after hiking 10 miles. Hope to see you soon.

    Had a great time. So sorry to hear some had their car vandalized. I've had that happen to me before, and it can be really discouraging!

    Wow, that's really unfortunate to find out about the stolen property and damaged vehicles. Hope that doesn't dissuade you from coming again!

      Not at all. I maintained my thunder!

    Super fun. Thanks Hugo! Glad to meet and talk to everyone I met. Sorry to miss the BBQ, but I already had plans. I hope to meet everyone else on a future hike.

    Great hike. Apparently not a great location for parking cars. Our car and two others were vandalized. Guess we won't be hiking inside the loop anymore...

    Hugo, is it all pavement.

    1 · March 8, 2013

    • Hugo

      ~70-% is paved but you can always, like me, walk just off the paved trail on the grass. And so then be on grass for ~ 90% fo the trail.

    Is parking still at 6540 Almeda Rd? Daisy would you still like to start with me at 9:30?

    March 8, 2013

    • Tracey

      Is that parking lot ok for the public?

      March 8, 2013

    • Hugo

      Yes it's public but seldom used since its far from main park.

    Hi - just joined (noticed through the Environmentally meetup). If we want to do this but turn around half way, is that okay? Just not sure if we'll do the whole thing. Thanks!

    March 6, 2013

    • Hugo

      Yes. Peopla are welcome to join us for just a part or up to their limit.
