We're going hiking! Be there!

Meet up by the main house for a 9am departure. Bring sunscreen, hat, water, snacks, etc. This hike will be between 8 and 12 miles.

There is a small fee to enter the park if you want to park close to the house or you can find parking in small pull-offs along the road near the park. I advocate support of the park, but I personally like to park near the lake at this specific hiking location. Cheers!

    We had an excellent group gather yesterday, and hiked some solid trails - even if we had to compete with ground squirrels for territory. It was great to meet and see everyone yesterday, and would be great to gather with this group again for future hikes!

    The house is the historic JD Grant ranch house, correct?

    March 7, 2014

    • Elizabeth

      Yes. It's the big, white house on the property. Though there are many structures in this park, the house is the one that does not look like a barn. If the wait list is activated, I hope to see you there!

    Average pace? Or will everyone be going at their own pace?

    March 7, 2014

    • Elizabeth

      Though I would prefer that we generally stay together as a group, I understand that people walk at their own pace. I can't give you an average pace as I tend to walk more briskly than most people.

  • Brian P

    What is the trail route if i may ask?

    March 7, 2014

    • Elizabeth

      There are multiple routes that we can choose. I was planning on putting it out as a vote for the group before we start from the house. One option is quite steep and long; another is similar, but shorter; and yet another...I can't comment on as I have not taken it yet.

  • Dominique

    Will try to make this hike. Do you have an estimated time for return? Thank you for organizing :)

    March 6, 2014

    • Elizabeth

      No estimated time for return as people hike at their own pace. I imagine early afternoon, however.

      March 6, 2014

  • Damien

    Looking forward hiking with you. Anyone near Sunnyvale and interested in carpooling?

    March 6, 2014

    • Didier P.

      I'll be driving from SF along 101 and can pick up people on the way (3 free seats)

      Hope you can, too! We'll be planning more day hikes in the coming weeks and then create a meetup to plan a week-long trek. Hope to meet you soon!
