This is a hike sponsored by the Gay and Lesbian Section of Loma Prieta, but all are welcome!! Sunol Regional Wilderness, part of the East Bay Regional Park District, is a jewel, providing a sense of true wilderness despite its proximity to I-680 and Livermore. We’ll meander up Hayfield Road to High Valley, lunch atop the peak at 1688 feet, and savor the panorama that includes Mount Diablo, San Antonio Reservoir, and Mission Peak. We’ll return via Welch Creek Road and the Hidden Trail. (All on the hike will be sworn to solemn secrecy.) We can expect abundant wildflowers, soaring turkey vultures and red-tailed hawks, and, of course, breath-taking vistas. We’ll meet at the Tamien Park and Ride at 9 a.m., or at the Ranger Station just inside the kiosk at 9:45 am. Dress warmly with layers, wind breaker and a hat. Don’t forget lunch, liquid, sturdy boots and a smile. Rain cancels everything but the smile. Leader: Dave Ellison [masked].
