End the week with a brisk hike in the hills! We'll cover about 5 miles, mostly wooded, with about 1000 feet elevation gain, stopping at the top for a picnic (tables provided). Bring water, a picnic dinner, something to share, and perhaps a flashlight and an extra layer in case it gets cold. Reasonably sturdy hiking footwear is in order. 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
