Hike and Networking at Alviso Marina County Park, ~4.5mi, 1.5-hour, easy hike

Alviso Marina County Park

I invite all busy tech professionals to join our morning hikes that will be organized regularly. These “easy”-rated hikes can be a way to train yourself for longer hiking events with a related Meetup group that explores US National Parks, or just to meet your group members offline.

Sometimes we will complement these hikes with networking time AFTER the hike, 9:30am-10:30am, at the picnic tables so that group members could connect more directly. Please check the comments to the event if after-hike networking is planned.

Usually we will take this hike at Alviso on Saturday. Also, the plan is to resume our Alviso morning hikes on Wednesdays - please, check the group's calendar for that.

We will take Alviso Slough Trail and make sure we are done by 9:30-9:45 am as the latest. This is a flat, fast-paced hike (or walk) and it can serve as a warm-up for your other activities later on this day. But if everybody in the group wants to do a longer hike, there are choices of trails at Alviso to extend our activities )) This Alviso hike will be hosted by either Lana, or Mike.

Please, bring:
layered cloths/windbreaker,
shoes appropriate for a rough trail,
water,
hat,
sunglasses.

The weather forecast in the area:

Please be aware that in the case of precipitation in the area the day before the hike - the trail can get muddy here and there. So, put on appropriate shoes, do not wear nice hiking/textile shoes..

No parking fee is charged currently at Alviso.

The Park is 100% open space and a good setting for cognitive respite by relaxing and restoring the mind ))

This event is cross-posted with hikers' Meetup groups:
U.S. National Parks Quest,
California Camping & Hiking Bay Area Back-Country Buddies,
and others.

See you at Alviso!
