Description: We have not done this for a while! This month we hope to see the wildflowers, as a result of those winter rains. Great views and great company! We may have several walk leaders to accompany walkers  and accommodate various levels of distance and walking pace. There is always the option to turn around. It is 1 1/2 miles to the first bench and a bit further to the next bench. Before we start out, we will discuss the options and plan accordingly.

Where to Meet: We will meet in the parking lot just beyond the Steam Trains off Lomas Cantadas Road, east of Grizzly Peak. There is an accessible toilet near there.

What to bring:
 Binoculars if you have them, good hiking shoes for the trails, layered clothing for variable weather, water, windbreaker, hat, snacks. Hiking poles are always recommended as they help with inclines and declines and stability in general. Bring your cell phone if you have one!
