Whether or not you got up insanely early for the Morris dancing this morning, here's a pleasant little midday hike to welcome in the May. We'll hike from Skyline Ridge into Russian Ridge, look at the view from atop Borel Hill, stop for a picnic, and head back, for a total of about 5 miles, with minor hills. Bring lunch, water, good walking footwear, and clothing appropriate to the day (remembering that it may be cooler and breezier up on the ridge). 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
