We start in Alum Rock park, climb the Boccardo Trail and explore Sierra Vista Open Space. See gooseberry in bloom as well as early wildflowers. Bring lunch and water. Heavy rain cancels.
16 miles and 3800ft of total elevation gain.
Start Time: 8:15am in Alum Rock Park's Eagle Rock parking lot. Entrance fee to the park is $6 per car, buy a parking ticket at the machine in the parking lot. There have been reports that parking is free in the Eagle Rock lot and that this parking lot thus fills up fast, so allow time to walk there from other parking lots.
Carpool: 7:30am at the Park-and-Ride at Page Mill Rd and Hwy 280. This is no-host carpooling. Participants meeting there need to arrange carpools among themselves.
Leader: Joerg Lohse, (408)[masked]
