A Bay Area Hiking trip I joined. Organized by Grace Mattioli, also joined by Lisa, Elena Cordero and Ted Lam. Basically an out and back, with a slight variation at the beginning of the outbound leg where we went up the water tank road rather than the actual trail. We started at Skyline College, went along the Sweeney Ridge Trail to the Portola Monument, then out the Baquiano Ridge trail a ways.

Weather and Conditions

Sunny and breezy, with plenty of wildflowers.

About 7 miles, 1400 feet of ascent, 3 hours on the trail.

The monument erected where the Portola Expedition discovered San Francisco Bay. That must have been a hell of a nasty bushwhack.
