Description: WE'RE FINALLY DOING HIKES AGAIN!! As we mentioned recently, San Mateo County has relaxed its group-size restrictions a bit. But all of the usual directives, masks, distancing..... MUST be followed. This hike will be limited to 12 people (sorry!)
Below are the regulations:
- We need to stay at least 6' apart at all times;
- You need to keep whatever type of mask you prefer around your neck at all times to be prepared to put it in place at a moment's notice when encountering others. Some prefer to wear a mask at all times - even better! The easiest solution some of us have found is to wear a bandana around your neck, shifting it up over your nose and mouth when passing or speaking with others;
- Ideally, unless you're members of one household, there should be one passenger in the back right seat only. Drivers and passengers can decide what they feel comfortable with. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED A RIDE AND/OR CAN TAKE A PASSENGER, AND WHAT YOUR COMFORT LEVEL IS.
- This is a link to the full list of regulations issued by San Mateo County a few weeks ago.
Starting on the riparian Six Bridges Trail we gain most of the hike's elevation after the campground on the Goat Hill, Doe Ridge and Indian trails to lunch in a peaceful campground. We return via the Butano Fire Road and Jackson Flats Trail. Bring: plenty of water in case it's warm, as portions of the after lunch section are exposed. Cancelled in event of heavy rain.
Bring/Wear: Lots of water (there is no place to refill), good hiking shoes, lunch, snacks and your MASK.
Rain Policy: Hike will take place rain or shine.
Driving Distance: 100 miles total there and back
Total Bridge Tolls and Entry Fees: none
Car Pool Fees: $15.00
Alternative Meeting Place: You may meet at the trailhead across from the kiosk at the park entrance.
