BMHS San Bruno Mountain Hike

5/25/2013 San Bruno Mountain Sat 2B

Hike length: 9 miles; 1800 feet of elevation gain

Hike description: At the northern end of the Santa Cruz Mountain range, this nature preserve is nestled between Daly City, Colma, South San Francisco and Brisbane. Mount Tamalpias, Mt Diablo and the Farallon Islands are visible on a clear day. San Bruno Mountain is composed primarily of coastal scrub but also includes oak woodland, chaparral and riparian habitats. It's steep slopes provide habitat for an incredibly diverse array of plants and wildlife, including 14 species of rare or endangered plants. It's close to cities and is not a pristine wilderness, but the wildflowers are in great abundance and variety in the springtime.

Expected duration of hike: 5 hours

Carpool locations: 9 am sharp at Lucky market, 2175 Grant Road, Los Altos (park at the south end of the lot near the trees). 9:20 am at 280/Edgewood Park & Ride. Call leader only on the morning of the hike.

Time to meet at trail head: 10 am

Directions to trail head: From Hwy 280, take exit 47 and Eastmoor Ave, turn left onto Junipero Serra Blvd, take a slight right onto San Pedro Rd, continue onto E. Market St, continue onto Guadalupe Canyon Pkwy to the park entrance on the left. From Hwy 101, take the Bayshore Blvd/Brisbane exit, continue on Bayshore Blvd, turn left onto Guadalupe Canyon Pkwy to the park entrance on the right. The park entrance fee is $6/car. Meet in the large parking lot immediately after the entry kiosk.

What to bring: Boots, poles, water, lunch, and a snack to share after the hike. Dress in layers.
Leader: Fran Keeler,[masked], [masked]

      So sad I missed this! I would have liked to join you. Instead I tried this place Asian Box for a summer roll- do not recommend this place, at least not for the to-go summer rolls. Hope the Crepevine was fun and I will see you there next time! Diana
