All sorts but my favorite is probably 8 to 10 miles with some hill climbing to great views.
Yes. I have been to Canada Del Oro and Sierra Vista.
I don't know. I always like to go on hikes other people lead so doing hikes at the parks is great for me.
I have been an avid day hiker in the San Francisco bay area for 20+ years and love to go hiking in both newly opened parks and existing parks. I lead hikes for the Gay and Lesbian Sierra club in the Loma Prieta chapter about once a month.
The only complaint I had was the meetup advertised meeting location was incorrect and I nearly did not find the group. I waited a the ranger station for 20 minutes and luckily the group came to the ranger station after meeting at the end of the parking lot to visit the ranger and found me.
