Taylor Mountain morning hike and brunch

Declare your independence …

Thursday morning July 4th
from atop Taylor
Mountain.


S.W.A.G. is going to rise, shine and head for the top of the
Taylor Mountain. We will depart from the Taylor Mountain
parking lot picnic table and hit the trail at 8:04 am. Shuttle from
Target/BevMo parking lot departs at 7:54 am. There is a parking fee at the Sonoma County parking lot so ride share from Target/BevMo makes $en$e.

Suggest bringing a snack for the peak and a brunch goodie to
share when we all return to the starting point in the parking lot. The trail mileage is low and there is some elevation gain. The view from the top in the cool morning will be breathtaking. The view from the peak will be worth each step and the effort. Find your pace and you will bag the peak to shout your independence. Round trip will be about 2:30 hours plus brunch celebration. We look forward to seeing you there. Please do join us for celebration.

      figure a couple of hours. We are there to enjoy the walk/hike up an down the hill. The goal is to be safe enjoy each other and our surroundings and to return with the same people we started out with.

    I agree with the early hour. What's the plan for brunch? We each bring something to share?

    I agree about keeping the start time at 8:00. Just hiked there last week, started at 8:45, and it was already heating up by 10:00. Given the current heat wave... count me out if you start any later - especially if the plan is to climb up the east trail and down the west!

    Greetings Nyla and others...
    The thinking for setting the time at 8ish was to hike up in the morning cool and be back down prior to the heat of the day.
    Current research suggests keeping regular hours regardless if it is a work day or holiday...keeps the body clock timely.
    Thoughts of others . . . ?

    Unless everyone agrees, don't change it on my account. I may pass to stay home and knit leg hairs.

    Is there any thought on making this a 9am hike? I'm having serious thoughts about getting out of bed at 6:30am on a holiday.
