HIKING @ the Bear Creek Redwoods LOS GATOS

19511 Bear Creek Rd

Hello Everyone...

Let's go hiking again @ this beautiful and shaded location called Bear Creek Redwoods Preserves in Los Gatos.

We have chosen this place for our weekly hike because it's kind of a haft way between people live in South Bay, East Bay & Santa Cruz.
Besides hiking, good exercises and pleasant conversations,, we elso enjoy making new friends and build a good and solid relationship with old friends.

This is an Intermediate, brisk hike with a little mountain to climb. This is not a hike for beginning hikers.

It's approximately 2 hours of hike around trip.

NOTES:

We usually go to the restaurant to eat after hiked. Open to suggestion of places nearby, we are very flexible and like any kind of foods.

I will NOT be forcing anyone to wear the mask or tell you what to do. Just follow the city guidelines yourself, respect others and DON'T complain.

PLEASE try NOT to bring up the inflammatory subjects that can easily lead to the argument such as politics, religious, genders, racism etc..

Also, please be nice, kind and help welcoming new members who joins us the for the first time and make them feel like one of us.
ENJOY THE HIKE!! 🏃‍♂️🏃🙏👍
