This is a nice little hike for winding down from the week. Figure about 4-5 miles of mostly wooded (as in shady) trails, with moderate hills, and a picnic break somewhere around the middle. Dress in layers & comfortable hiking shoes, and bring water, a picnic dinner, something to share, and perhaps something to sit on. Rain cancels. Parking at the trailhead is quite limited! 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
