We are NOT meeting at the Botanical Gardens. The parking lot is on the right hand side of Centennial Drive as you drive up the hill past the Softball and Football fields and before you get to the Botanical Gardens. If full, you should be able to park at the Softball/Football fields. Plese be punctual as I won't be waiting long past 10am.
We will hike from the parking lot to the trail head for the Stonewall - Panoramic trail which is on Stonewall Rd . Our path to get there is a bit complicated. From the trailhead at Stonewall we will walk along the ridge to the Lower Jordan Fire Trail, Grizzly Peak Blvd and back on Centennial Drive past Lawrence Hall of Science and to the Botanical Gardens.
At the Botanical Gardens, hikers can decide to return to their cars or visit the Gardens. The admission is $10 and they recommend spending 2 hrs to visit with the understanding that you won't be able to see it all. There is a free docent tour at 1:30pm and I'll try to time the hike for that.
