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.
