Distance: 10 mile +ish, elevation gain/loss ~ 1000 feet. 

(Map is attached below, it is a good idea  to print out one by yourself or save one on your phone !)

The elevation is at first 2 miles, which is good for warmup. After are almost flat/down hill trails, which always have best view of the forest and coast. Anyhow, it is quiet place!

    For the ones , who want to Carpool from Milpitas Square, please show up on time 8:10AM. Introduce yourself and then decide how many cars will drive and who will drive. etc. All this need to be done by yourselves or someone volunteer to organize. I won't join the Carpool as I start from Berkley.

    PS:
    1, My route is Berkeley, Richmond, San Rafael, etc. Please let me know if you need a ride along the way.

    2, About the after dinner, none is planed yet but we can decide after we get out of the trail. Point Reyes Station may be a reasonable place if we want to.
