Trail Notes:

This hike is easier than the Remington hike ( 770' elevation gain, and 4 miles total). Definitely easier than Wall Point. Parking is free. Restrooms and water at the trailhead. When we get to Las Trampas Peak, we will show the Wall Point hikers the view of that trail. Weather should be good.
