San Bruno Mountain

Join Cathy on a 5 to 6 mile hike with roughly 1000’ elevation gain at San Bruno Mountain State and County park just south of San Francisco. We’ll start in the main parking lot and hike up to the mountain top on the Eucalyptus, Dairy Ravine, and Ridge trails. We’ll find a nice spot near or on the top to eat lunch. Then we will take the Summit trail back down the mountain. 

Meet at the park main lot at 9:45 am. We will be heading out on the trail at 10 am. Bring a lunch, a jacket in case its cold, sun protection (sun glasses, sunscreen, a hat etc.) as there is very little shade on this hike, plenty of water, money for the park entrance fee (~$6.00) and wear hiking shoes or boots if you have them. Heavy rain cancels the hike but we’ll still do it in a light rain. Dogs are not allowed; please respect this park rule and leave your pets at home. 

Getting there from 101: 

Take Bayshore Boulevard/Brisbane exit, proceed on Bayshore Boulevard 

• Turn west on Guadalupe Canyon Parkway toward the mountain and proceed to the park entrance on your right.

Getting there from 280 North: 

• Take Mission Street exit. 

• Turn left (north) on Junipero Serra Blvd. 

• Turn right onto San Pedro Blvd. San Pedro Blvd will turn into E Market Street, and E Market Street will turn into Guadalupe Canyon Parkway, heading east up the canyon. 

• The Park entrance will be on your left towards the top of the hill.

    Cathy, thank you for hosting the hike. In spite of the fog, it was fun to meet new women and find kindred spirits with a love for the great outdoors. See you all again soon, I hope.

    Seven of us enjoyed a cool fog socked hike at San Bruno. At lunch the fog finally cleared a bit and we saw a bit of San Francisco. We did not see the airport or any airplanes as is usual for this park. They were hidden by the fog.

    Thanks to Cathy for leading a terrific hike. Also great to meet a group of congenial women.

    Bev - we didn't wait, but it's too bad you missed us!

    Wonderful short local (for me) hike to get to know the group. A very nice place to come and do workouts outdoors sometimes rather than going to the gym. A lovely group of women, good easy pace and a variety of weather and views. Definite do-again hike. Hope to do more soon.

    I am so lame. I went out 101 looking for Bayshore/Brisbane exit and completely missed it. Made my way back eventually to the park but was too late. Coming from SF I probably should've gotten on Bayshore without getting on the freeway. Really sorry if my absence made people wait...hope it was a great hike!

    I am driving up from Los Gatos if there are hikers in the South Bay who want to carpool...

    If anyone is open to carpooling from South Berkeley/North Oakland drop me a line.
