About the event
We will be rewarded with both Sonoma and Napa county views of the Mayacamas Mountains. On the trail leading to the summit there will be panoramic views of the surrounding valleys and distant mountain ranges.
Fellow hiker, Carleen Lawson/Clawson, will be joining us to share some stories of the area surrounding Hood Mountain. Her family previously owned and passed on the property to land trust.
We will hike Lower Johnson Ridge Trail to Pond trail to Upper Johnson Ridge, up to the top of Hood Mountain to Gunsight Rock. We’ll have a break at the top and return on the Summit trail to Hood Mountain and Panoramic Ranch trails. It’s about 8 miles and 2200 feet elevation. Bring water, snack/lunch and poles if you use them. Heavy rain cancels. Hike leaders Peggy Clark 650-274-4137 and Colleen Keegan 925-487-4014
