It's prime wildflower season now that the early spring rain has passed and warmer weather has been here for a while. Let's go check out the flowers at Henry Coe before they fade! This partly-unscouted hike should cover about 8 miles (according to the map), with 1 mile being moderately strenuous. We'll pass through grasslands and forest, and stop at a lake, so there'll be plenty of variety. The leader expects to be somewhat tired from the Pinnacles hike, so plan on more of a flower-viewing pace than usual. Bring lunch, liquids, good hiking footwear, sun protection, carpool money, and maybe a camera for the scenery. Meet at carpool point #3.
Directions to LPSS carpool point #3 (Santa Clara County parking lot): Corner of 1st and Hedding, San Jose. Exit 101 or 880 onto 1st Street south in San Jose. Turn right at Hedding, and right again into the parking lot. Don't be too worried about the "no public parking" signs; they don't seem to apply on weekends.
