Sanborn-Skyline County Park New Members Hike

Co-listed with Sierra Club,Loma Prieta Chapter, Guadalupe Regional Group

Open to everyone. Join the Guadalupe Regional Group of the Loma Prieta Chapter of Sierra Club for a 2B hike at the Sanborn-Skyline County Park.

Hike details: 7 miles round-trip, about 1,200' elevation gain, 2B2

This is a moderate hike at an easy pace that starts with shaded elevation gain and ends with a lovely downhill mosey.  Sanborn-Skyline's San Andreas-Sanborn trail, while a good workout, offers welcome relief from summer sun, and is the perfect summer hiking spot.  The trail can be steep in places, but you'll be covered in a canopy of redwoods. Bring lunch, snacks, plenty of water, a hat, sunglasses, and wear hiking boots.

We will meet at 9:30 a.m. at the Peterson Grove picnic area.  Sanborn-Skyline County Park is west of Saratoga and south of San Jose. From Saratoga, go 2 miles west on Highway 9 to Sanborn Road. Turn left onto Sanborn Road and go about one mile to the park entrance (on the left).  There is a parking fee of $6.  Hike leaders: Lise Strom at[masked] and Linda Barbosa at[masked]-0185.

Be Cool - Carpool:

· 9:00 AM: Los Gatos Municipal Parking Lot (on Highway 9 between University Ave & Santa Cruz Ave, behind Chase bank). If you end up on Santa Cruz Ave , Chase bank, Starbucks or Safeway, look out for driveways leading to the back of those places, which connect to the Municipal Parking lot. This will be the most efficient car pool location for all points East or North of here.

· 9:15 AM: Saratoga library, off highway 85 on Saratoga Ave. This will be the most efficient car pool location for all points West or North of here.

Note: Both car pool locations are unofficial, but based on messages below, several hikers will be meeting at these car pool locations.

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.

    Good hike. Excellent turn out. Great choice of hike route - never thought a 1150 ft plus elevation gain hike could be so pleasant in July.

    Great. We split-up by choice later to accommodate every one, and all were happy.

    Lise & Linda - thank you for today's hike! Great weather and good company. Just wanted to let you know that the "get-to-the-top" group that signed out mid-way all finished fine and found rides back to their carpool spots. See you at another one in the future!

    Note on Car pooling: Hikers are free to car pool as per their convenience.

    Keep in mind that Los Gatos Municipal Parking Lot (Highway 9 between University Ave & Santa Cruz Ave, behind Chase bank) is very close to CA-17 and CA-85 and easy to reach from many places. This spot has 'unlimited' free parking thanks to the City of Los Gatos. From here traveling west on Hwy 9, within 5 mts (3.6 miles) you will reach the junction of De Anza Ave, Saratoga Ave, and Hwy 9.
