Let's meetup and hike in Redwood Regional Park! We'll meet at the trailhead for Skyline Staging Area. Please by there by 12 - it will be hard to catch up as there isn't much service in the park itself. This is a beautiful, dog friendly park with wonderful redwoods. The route will be ~4.5 miles, and will have ~1200 ft of elevation. Please be comfortable walking up hills. It should only take ~2 hours but please budget for 3, just in case. The plan is to take the East Ridge trail => Phillip Loop trail => Stream Trail => Tres Sendas => Starflower Trail => French Trail => Stream Trail => Phillip Loop Trail => East Ridge Trail. I'm very familiar with the park so we won't get lost! My cell is[masked], feel free to text if you can't find us. Getting there: this is only ~25 minutes from downtown Oakland, but I'm not sure if AC Transit serves it. There a parking lot at the trail head, and it's easy to find street parking. Parking is free. Please bring your own water, and snacks if you think you'd like a snack on the trail. Sunblock is also good, but most of the trail will be shaded. Please check weather - it might be chilly so bring a light jacket. If it's raining, I'll cancel the meetup. See you at the trailhead!
Come by for a beer and make some new friends! This place is in uptown Oakland, just a few blocks from the 19th St BART. I will be there at 7 and post our location in the comments. They have a huge patio with heaters, so there are plenty of table options. I'll be there till at least 9pm, so don't worry about being late, come by when you can! Lost and Found has a great beer selection, as well as wine and cider and good food. It's a relaxed place to hang out after work, especially in nice weather. Please bring a jacket in case we need to sit outside! If you can't find the group, my cell is[masked]. Hope to see you Friday! Parking - Parking has gotten much worse in uptown recently, if you plan to drive, either give yourself plenty of time to find a spot, or be prepared to pay for one of the lots nearby.
Let's meetup for a low key walk and meet some new people. I'll be there at 11:45AM, but we'll leave on the walk promptly at 12PM. I will be waiting outside the cafe, usually on a bench or at a table. Try not to be late! My cell is[masked] if you can't find us or are a bit late, give me a text and we'll try to meet up. • The route is a little over 3 miles • We usually finish and get back to our cars in about an hour and a half. • Dog-friendly! It's always fun to have a couple doggie friends on the walk with us ;o) • There is usually plenty of parking on Grand Ave around Farley's, also it's free on Sunday and time-limits do not apply See you Sunday!
