Hike: Crystal Springs
Nov 10 - Peninsula

This hike is pretty civilized, what with one part having park benches and the paved trail with a dashed yellow line down the middle (there's even a speed limit!).

Despite the civilized location, the Sawyer Camp trail is quite lovely. It brings you right up to the gorgeous Crystal Springs and San Andreas lakes -- you know, the ones you see along I-280. Even for the Bay Area, this area is exceptionally beautiful.

What to Bring:
The usual: water, lunch, and a snack.  Rain gear and warm clothes, and/or a sunhat may be advisable depending on the weather.

Directions:
See http://tinyurl.com/bhc2t3y for a Google map.

Take 280 north or south to exit 36, Black Mt. Rd/Haynes Rd, and turn west. At T junction, follow sign pointing left to Sawyer Camp Trail. Proceed 1.3 mi to trailhead on the right.  Park along the street and meet inside the gate.

Carpooling:
Carpooling is always a good idea. The https://www.groupcarpool.com/ site might be worth using.

I have personally set up a site to coordinate carpooling, but this is not officially endorsed by any of the sponsoring organizations: https://www.groupcarpool.com/t/o7hfjn

Rain policy:
This being a paved path, light rain does not cancel.  If it's forecast to rain significantly, the hike is off and we will send out an email no later than 8 AM the morning of the hike to all persons who have RSVP'ed.

 

Disclaimers:
Joining any hike is entirely voluntary and participants assume any and all risks associated with the activities. By registering or attending this event, participants agree to the conditions posted HERE
