|On Thursday I drove over the Golden Gate Bridge to
Muir Woods where I hiked up the Main Trail to the Ben
Johnson Trail and came back on the Hillside Trail. There
were a ton of people at the visitor center but once you
hiked about 1/2 mile away there were about 80% less.
After a mile there were only a few people out an about.
On the steep Ben Johnson Trail there was hardly a soul!
And the redwoods and wildflowers were beautiful.
|After Muir Woods I drove up to Mt. Tamalpais State
Park and hiked the short but steep hike to East
Peak. There is a fire lookout on the top that is no
longer manned but the views are outstanding,
especially on a clear sunny spring day :)
