This hike covers about 8 miles, with 1500 feet of elevation gain. We'll have some nice views, and plenty of redwood forest. We'll cross a couple of streams which may or may not have bridges across them, so come prepared for possible wading. Among other things, we'll see the Tarwater creek; we won't be wading in that one! Pace will be moderate. After the hike, we'll have the option of joining the chapter's BBQ/potluck. Bring lunch and water, and, if staying for the BBQ afterward, something to BBQ, something to share, and your own plate and utensils. Hiking boots might be a good idea, though I'll probably be wearing sandals. Meet at carpool point #6.
Directions to LPSS carpool point #6 (Page Mill / 280 Park 'N Ride): Exit 280 onto Page Mill Road west (Los Altos Hills) in Palo Alto. The lot is next to the freeway. If looking for overflow parking, beware of the "No Parking" signs along Arastradero. Map: http://tinyurl.com/2tq9rk
