Sunday Peak and Unal Trail Hikes followed by early dinner at Greenhorn Grill

We will meet at the sand shed on Greenhorn Summit at 9:00 AM.  We will drive to the TH for Sunday Peak Trail (31E66).  Sunday Peak is 8295' and the RT is 3.2 miles and 1100' elevation gain.  A lookout once capped this peak and grand views are in store.  This is a moderate hike. 

Then we drive back across the intersection from the sand shed to the TH for the Unal Trail (Trail of the Bear).  This is a lovely easy 3.2 mile RT hike with 730' elevation gain to Unal Peak (6838').  If there are brochures at the TH, you can follow the numbered interpretative posts along the trail.

Afterward for those who choose will have an early dinner at nearby Greenhorn Grill in Alta Sierra. 

Bakersfield Carpoolers meet at Mesa Marin Chevron (Hwys 58 and Weedpatch) at 7:20 AM.

    Same here, Tony. We were Paul Decker, Bob Joy and Marcia Lynn. I'm doing an annotated panorama from the top of Sunday and will share it shortly. The haze was pretty bad, but the pic will be "good enough".

      I'm posting 4 pix that I'm also sharing with our "Midweekers" here in Ridgecrest. ( I'm trying to make them envious of a great couple of hikes). If you have trouble downloading the panorama and enlarging it to be useful, don't hesitate to ask for it via email (that goes for anyone). The haze almost obscured the Sierra Crest, but I thoroughly enjoyed studying the less familiar Kern Plateau and other shorter range details. I'm at [masked].

    Hey, guys - you may want to check with Greenhorn Grill for availability. I know I'm doing an organized ride in Kernville on Saturday, and we end up at the Greenhorn Grill for dinner. This group I expect to be big - 100 or more riders, so it may make the Greenhorn crowded!
