BART#3-Hood Mountain (Kenwood/Santa Rosa)-~12mi/2,500ft

 After two great hikes (one on the north end and one on the south end of BART), we return to the wine country for a picturesque but strenuous hike.

We continue in recognizing the 25th year of the Bay Area Ridge Trail in 2014.

This is the third of 40+ hikes to circumvent the entire Bay Area Ridge Trail (within 2 years).  Come join us!

This is a strenuous hike: approximately 12 miles and 2,500 feet of elevation gain.  Not recommended for first time hikers.

Here are links with  regional park information and the trail map:

See link below of previous outing to this location:

We will meet at the parking lot (off Pythian Rd) before entering park.  Please plan on arriving on time, as to start hike by 9:30AM.

The weather forecast appears to be just right (no rain and in the 70s).

Please plan accordingly - clothing layers, shoes/boots, water, nutrition, hiking aids, etc.

If you need to reach me, my number is[masked]-5798.

We will plan to enjoy food and drinks after the hike.  Location - TBD (suggestions welcomed).

    Hi Tom,
    I was wondering what 40+ means. Is that the age you are talking about?

    I am going to shoot for an open Saturday, though working as a Realtor, I may have to meet with a client, last minute, but I am going to hope that doesn't happen!
