The first part of the hike is a steep 1.7 mi uphill on Knibbs Knob and then back down again to the parking lot.  After a break, we will try to visit all the waterfalls in this area - Triple Falls, Upper Falls, Basin Falls and Black Rock Falls.

If you change your mind on going, please update your RSVP at least 1 day before the hike or you will be considered a no-show.

    Except for the elevation, and I'm talking about that 1.7 mi uphill, it was a great hike in good company. Thanks Edmond for organizing it.

    Any folks care to meet and carpool from San Jose? Almaden Expy exit off the 85 near the Barnes & Noble/Costco is a good spot.

    I probably will be out of town but I'll try to make it, even w/3000 ft elevation (come on Edmond?!). But I notice a dear friend of mine will be there! ;-)
    No, no, not you Dan...

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
