I am planning a trip on the Ohlone Wilderness Trail in Feb. So far there are 2 of us going. The trip is 28 miles one way, we plan on making the round trip in 2 days. Leave on a Saturday morning and hike 28 miles, camp, hike 28 miles back on Sunday. The trailhead we will start at is Mission Peak in Fremont, Ca. and end up at Lake Valle in Livermore.
Here is an exerpt from the trail site.
"Overview: Ohlone Wilderness Trail is one wicked walk: 28 miles with over 7,600 feet of elevation gain. But it's worth the strain as you soak up amazing vistas, scout for wildlife and marvel at being in such a remote locale so close to a huge metropolis. (Large raptors like eagles and hawks can often be spotted swooping down on their doomed prey).
Parks form the trailheads at both ends of the trail: Mission Peak Regional Preserve in Fremont on the west and Del Valle Regional Park in Livermore on the east. The trail passes Rose Peak, the highest accessible point in Alameda County, and traverses Sunol Regional Wilderness, one of the East BAy's premiere hiking destinations. Trails can get crowded on weekends at Mission Peak and Sunol, but the rest of time you'll have the trails largely to yourself (and a few grazing cattle.)
This hike is not for rookies, though conditioned day hikers looking to try backpacking should be able to do it over three days"
That's one way for three days. HA HA HA. We are going to go 56 miles in 2 days.
So who's with me??
