This is an annual January Loma Prieta Peak-Climbing Section tradition. It's a 12-mile round trip to the summit of the peak. We'll be carpooling from San Jose, as it is a 150-mile drive to the trailhead. This peak is the 2nd highest in the Santa Lucia range. On the summit, we'll find exotic ponderosa pine, white fir, and other plants normally associated with the Sierra. We'll start at the trailhead at 10 AM, summit by 2 PM and be back at the cars by 4 PM. This is a class 1 day-hike open to all.
