Extended Morning Stroll Hike at Annadel Strenuous (10 miles)

Details

This is an extended version of our regular Morning Stroll Hike. We start the hike at Parktrail Dr. from there we will take the Service Road to Rough Go, connect with Cobblestone Trail to Orchard Trail, from here we will Rough Go Trail and connect with Live Oak where we will turn left until we get to North Burma. We will take a right at W.P. Richardson Trail until we get to Lake Ilsanjo. According to the weather conditions, we can either take Canyon Trail or walk around the lake and take Spring Creek Trail back to the Trail Head.

The Service road and Rough Go Trail will be open space, so be prepare for sun or wind. The rest of the trail will be mostly shaded.

We will not be stopping for a lunch break. Please bring a snack that you can eat on the trail.

From Hwy 101 go to Hwy 12 East in Santa Rosa. Take the stoplight straight onto Hoen Ave. Take a right at the light onto Summerfield Rd. Take a left onto Parktrail Dr. (2nd street on left) Park about 1/3 of a mile down the road.

Please read and be familiar with the guidelines of the group as listed below. It’s important before you come on a Wanderer hike that you agree and are prepared with the following.

As always:

Please always check your email the night before just in case there are any necessary adjustments to the hike details. Cancellations or any adjustments will be posted by 10pm the previous evening.

TO BRING: YOU! glorious hiker person you – dying to hit the trails and laugh, talk, sweat and enjoy in a group of like minded Wanderers… Oh yeah, and you should always bring your hiking safety essentials, layered clothing, water and food appropriate to the outing as mentioned below.

RSVP etiquette must be followed. Only RSVP when you can commit to attend. Once you have RSVP'd if you have an emergency that means you have to cancel please change your RSVP by 5pm the prior day. This will avoid a "no-show" reflecting on your participation history. Over 3 "no-shows" might mean we have to excuse you from the group. We try very hard to respect each other in this group.

Give yourself time to find the trail head so that you arrive prior to the scheduled time. That is the time we head out on the trail. It would be disappointing to miss having you on the hike due to late arrival. You will be left behind if you are not ready to head out at the hike start time.

Wear comfortable hiking shoes with good rugged soles that are well broken in.

Duration: 4-5 hours

Facilities: no

Dogs?: none allowed

Bring plenty of water. More than one bottle is usually a good idea.

Dress in layers. The hike starts off cool but rapidly warms up.

Bring your smile and great attitude! We are ALL about trail enjoyment while respecting everyone’s time!
