Subject: Sunol hike CANCELLED - Inspiration Point instead
From: John Bondon
Prachi checked on the conditions at Sunol and was informed that the trails are very muddy due to all the recent heavy rains. And although a little mud never hurt anyone, we decided we might all enjoy it more under less muddy conditions. So Sunday's Sunol Regional Wilderness hike is officially CANCELLED and will be tentatively rescheduled for 2 weeks from Sunday.
Instead, the new plan is now to hike at Inspiration Point starting out along the Nimitz Way paved trail, then continuing on along the dirt trail that leads closer to the water, with spectacular views of San Francisco Bay and the Sacramento River and Delta. For those wishing to hike only the paved trail, total round trip distance will be 8 miles. For those continuing on, round trip is estimated to be about 10 miles.
You'll find more details about this upcoming hike posted on the East Bay Casual Hiking website. In case of rain Sunday morning, please phone my cell phone (posted on the website) for an update as to whether the hike is still on.
Happy Trails! :)
