Hi Everyone,
I am substituting for Chris Oaks this coming Saturday, 5/19/2012. Instead of going to Mt. Diablo, I plan to lead hike to cover most of the trails from Phleger Estate (part of the Golden Gate National Park) and Huddart County Park in Mid-Peninsula. See details below.
May 19 - 8 AM (departure time)Weekes ParkHike Leader: Peggy Dean, (650)[masked], [address removed]
Hike under the canopy of second growth of redwoods, various pines and oaks is very pleasant in a warm day.Approximately 10 miles, mostly moderate. It can be strenuous because of the length of the hike, luckily there are plenty of shorter options ( 6 miles, 7 miles, or 8 miles) you can take and still enjoy the soft trails and the beauty of mid-peninsula hills at this time of the year. So, please carpool accordingly. I will handout maps to those who plan to take the shorter options.
We will start at the Lonely Trail, Phleger Estate, lunch at Zwierlein Picnic Area, then back up our parking place via Deans Trail and Chinquapin Trail.
The trail head is at Highway 35, about 2 miles south of the main entrance for the North Ridge Trailhead on Highway 35. I need a coordinator and sweep for this hike. If you are interested please contact me. I will meet you at the parking lot between 8:30 am and 8:45 am. Note: Limited parking.
Until then, enjoy your day.
Peggy
