Description: The Sequoia Bayview trail is a wide level trail (out and back). You will see a few patches of redwoods. There is little elevation change (239 ft) on the 3 mile stretch and it is shady. We can turn around at any point.
Option for more energetic walkers: from the Sequoia-Bayview Trail the Sunset trail drops several hundred feet down to the valley floor, then runs parallel to the Sequoia Bayview Trail. From this trail the fairly steep Chaparral Trail, climbs back up the hill to connect with the Sequoia Bayview to return to our trailhead.
Depending upon availability of walk leaders we will accommodate the various levels of challenge (walk pace and distance). Will discuss before we start off.
Where to meet: We will meet at Sequoia/Bayview Trailhead on Skyline Boulevard approximately 1/2 mile from Joaquin Miller Blvd.
What to bring: Dress for variable weather conditions. Bring water, snacks, sunscreen, a hat, and hiking poles are always a good option. Poles can be helpful for balance and to maneuver on any uneven segments on the trails. Bring your cell phone if you have one!
Directions:From Rockridge BART, get on Hwy 24 going East. Take the Hwy 13 exit going south. Take the Joaquin Miller exit and turn Left on Joaquin Miller Road. Turn left at the junction with Skyline Drive (Left arrow at traffic light). After about a half mile see the Joaquin Miller Trailhead on the left. Park along the road on the left side.10800 Skyline for your nav system.
