Hike San Bruno Mountain — Sat July 11

There is lots to do up here! Yes it is windy, but if you come prepared, you’ll love the views of the Bay and SF, the hikes (there are 4) and the ranger talks / walks. There is a wide variety of scenery, and a fairly level walk around the mountain from the parking lot.   This mountain is quite amazing, it is the largest open space district in San Mateo County. The park itself is shared by the county and state.

Picnics, Food, Bikes!

Events that get us moving and outside are the best! Why not try a food shopping / picnic / bike ride combo!?
Here is the plan: Select  a Sunday – walk the Campbell Farmers Market picking up yummy stuff for the picnic.  Then take a leisurely ride down the Los Gatos Creek Trail to Vasona Park where we will pick a grassy spot by the lake and enjoy a delicious picnic with your friends!

If you need to rent a bike call Tread Bike Shop at 408-792-7191. They have bikes available for $20 for 24 hours. Make sure to call and reserve your bike in advance. You can pick up the day of the event. It is located right across the street from the ride on the Los Gatos Creek Trail!
