Ever wonder about all those buildings, new and historic, off Pythian Road on the other side of Highway 12? Find out, while following paths and streets into the area on a nearly flat-surface hike of about 3 miles. Leader is Yvonne Horn 537- 9135, with a 9:00 a.m. Berger departure.

SONOMA VALLEY REGIONAL PARK

This 6-mile hike with 640 ft elevation gain climbs several of the park’s hills and ridges. We’ll follow the Cougar, Black Canyon Creek, Woodland Star, and Suttonfield Lake Trails. Returning on the mostly flat Valley of

the Moon Trail, we’ll pause to reflect at a memorial of stones painted with the names of those who died in the October 2017 wildfires. Bring lunch, water, hiking poles. Parking is $7 if you don’t have a Regional Park pass, or there is street parking on Highway 12 by the dog park. Heavy rain cancels. Leave Berger at 9 a.m. Hike leader is Linne McAleer, 415-847-4420.

A REMINDER TO ALL HIKERS: If the hiking trail is more than 30 miles round trip from Oakmont, it is customary to compensate your driver at least $5.00 for gas.
