Ohlone Wilderness: from Del Valle to Sunol (20+ miles)

link to facebook event page.  http://www.facebook.c...

Distance: 20+ miles.

Elevation Gain: ~3000 fts.

Duration: 8-10 hrs.

Del Valle gate open hour: 6:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m
Sunol open hour: 8 a.m. - 8 p.m
Sunset time: 6:11PM

We carpool at 7AM(sharp, please arrive before that) in Milpitas Ranch 99 (338 Barber Ln, Milpitas, CA). It is about 33min drive to Sunol, and 52min drive to Del Valle. So we can start hiking at 8AM. There are 10 hours before sunset, so if we keep 2.5mile/hour, that should be enough.

When carpool, drivers exchange car, so drivers can drive back their own cars when back, no need to wait.

Fee shared by all:
Del Valle entrance: $8 per car.
Sunol entrance: $5 per car.
Carpool fee: $16 for car to Sunol, $25 for car to Del Valle.

Permit:
Everyone need a permit (which is a map). If you don't have it, buy it at the entrance, $2. so bring some money.

Please be prepared, extra food/water, warm clothes, and headlamp/flashlight.

    Here "Ge" is not a last name. It means "Prime".

    I though Hailong's last name is Teng? when did he change his name, or who changed the name for him? ;)
