2011-10-01 Partly sunny, temps in the 70’s.
We did the 5 mile loop, starting at Homestead trail and ending on the Blue Ridge trail. The views from the Blue Ridge Trail are phenomenal, but to get there is a trek.
It’s a civilized hike, for they have built in stairs. Be very grateful. This was a workout hike. Shady in the beginning when on Homestead, but opens up completely once on Blue Ridge.
Word of caution: Poison oak lurks all around!
Don’t forget your camera or water. If you plan correctly you can have a nice lunch with a fantastic view of Lake Berryessa on top of the Blue Ridge trail. It makes a nice break in the hike.
We were covered in dirt and happy by the time we got home.
