Details

The hike to Sandstone Peak is supposed to be one of the nicest in the area. We'll do a loop and include a few other peaks, as well as some off trail exploration and rock bouldering.

Basics: Mileage: 8 - 11 miles

Elevation Gain: 2000 - 2500 ft

Terrain: Mostly trail, however will potentially have some class 2 bouldering / climbing to some of the summits.

Difficulty: 7 / 10 Moderate to Advanced

Please be in good hiking shape and willing to go off trail and scramble on rocks We will take the shorter, steeper trail on the way up to Sandstone Peak. Then we'll continue along and veer off trail toward the summits of Inspiration Point, Boney Peak, Exchange Peak, and Tri-Peaks. We may add in some additional hiking along Boney Ridge and / or the Backbone trail. Please bring / wear long sleeves in case we encounter some brush.

Also, I provided a link to where you should park. We are meeting at "A". Point "B" is the Ranger Station, "A" is one mile past it. If you are coming from the 101, then point "A" is 4.5 miles after turning off of Mulholland onto Little Sycamore Canyon (turns into Yerba Buena rd).
