**UPDATE**

I have just checked the weather and there are chances of showers all day tomorrow. The percentages are low after 11am. Today I hiked the area and around 12pm the skies cleared up. So I think the best chances of us getting good visibility is if we start the hike around 11am and finish up at 1pm. Which is what I had originally planned. The 9am time was for ppl to meet up to carpool and such.
I will be heading out from Sunnyvale around 9:15ish and will meet everyone at the park at 10:45am. The hike will start promptly at 11:00am. Make sure to bring warm clothes and of course a rain coat.
I will have a yellow backpack and green raincoat on with a grey hat. I will be by the restrooms since the hike starts at the right of the restrooms.
Please email me if you decide to come and need my phone number. :D

A year ago I purchased the Moon Book: 101 Great Hikes of the San Francisco Bay Area. This will be the third hike scheduled out of that book. I had a blast starting the book with this group and I am looking forward to working through with you guys too!

Hike 3 Details:

Name: Old Landing Cove Trail
Level: Easy
Distance: 2.5 miles
Time: 1.5 hours
Elevation: Negligible
Cost: $10.00 per vehicle for parking

"Summary: The dramatic Davenport shoreline is spread out before you on this easy, inviting walk." -Ann Marie Brown (Author)

Excerpt: “Even if you are not fortunate enough to have a bobcat cross your path, you’ll still enjoy the trail’s other highlights, including a seal rookery, spectacular jagged bluffs, sandy beaches, and a hidden fern cave.”

Suggested Plan:
Hike the trail.
Have a picnic at end or beginning of trail.
Option of exploring other parts, if any.

I have never hiked these trails before so I will be as new to it as most of you, but I got the book! And if you know the trail awesome!!!

Will definitely set up a carpool due to distance and the cost of parking. :D

Will set up more details once the date is closer.
