Take your first hike of 2014 with Loma Prieta Sierra Singles at Russian Ridge where we"ll have the opportunity for some great exercise and spectacular views from the ridge line. When the weather is clear you can see all the way to the ocean to the west, all of the East Bay hills and Mount Diablo to the east, and south to Mount Umunhum. Bring water, layers, sunscreen and maybe even a hot beverage because it can be windy and chilly. We will hike approximately 6 miles with 600 feet of elevation gain.
