There will be two start points: Full distance is approximately 15 miles round trip start at 7:30 a.m. at Pic Quik on the corner of Sonoma Ranch Blvd and Bataan Memorial Hwy. For approximately 10 miles round trip start promptly 8:30 a.m. at the corner of Golf Course Road and Sonoma Ranch Blvd. The people doing 15 miles will join the people doing 10 miles at the SW corner of Golf Course Road and Sonoma Ranch Blvd so be prompt because if we don’t see you we will keep walking. Once we reach the pavilion at ‘A’ Mountain we will take a brief break before starting up the mountain. After descending the mountain, we will take a snack break and head back on Sonoma Ranch Blvd.
This is a beginner/intermediate hike. For the most part the walk is paved and flat but you can go as far as you want. You can turn around at any point. If you are a beginner hiker know your limit. You can always do this hike again when it’s offered and go further. Build your ability and stamina slowly each time you do it. For the intermediate hikers this is a chance to get in a good amount of miles on an easy route.
Even though we will take a gentle route up and down ‘A’ Mountain wear the appropriate footwear for which ever portion of this hike you are doing. Use sunscreen and wear a hat since there is no cover or shade on this hike. Bring plenty of water and snacks.
Return time for the 15 milers approximately 2:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. for the 10 milers.
