There are sometimes turkeys about when we hike at Rancho San Antonio in the evening; let's see if they're out in the morning! This will be a moderately brisk hike of about 5-6 miles, passing through prime turkey territory at beginning and end. Sorry, you can't take the turkey home for dinner; leave that bag of bread crumbs at home -- but do bring water and trail munchies. Heavy rain cancels. Note: please carpool, rather than going directly to Rancho. The parking lots at Rancho tend to be full! Meet at carpool point #8.
Directions to LPSS carpool point #8 (Homestead Square in Cupertino): Exit 280 onto Saratoga-Sunnyvale Rd (De Anza Blvd) towards Sunnyvale (north). First left on Homestead. Shopping center is on left side. Pass RiteAid and the PW Market, and continue to the north end of the shopping center. Park along the Homestead side, near Carl's Jr.
