Third time is a charm: On Saturday, August 4, we’re hiking at La Honda Creek Open Space Preserve. The complete trail in a recently opened area of the park is nine miles long but I think we’ll turn back after about three miles. If anyone is feeling particularly energetic and eager to see the whole trail, we can decide whether to continue at the turn-back point.

According to my map, we’ll climb about two hundred feet, descend another 200 to Harrington Creek, and then climb up 200 feet again. Same on the return trip. We will enjoy wide-open spaces, long views, late wild flowers, and the company of large but peaceful bovine.

We’ll leave from the UU Fellowship (2124 Brewster at Lowell) in Redwood City at 9am, Saturday, August 4. Arrive early to arrange carpools. If you want to meet us at the trailhead, the hike starts from Gate LH11 at the end of Sears Ranch Road. We should arrive there between 9:45 and 10am. There is a toilet at the trail head but not beyond.
