Mt Sizer (Made Me Wiser)

Peak Mount Sizer Group   Trailhead Henry Coe Headquarters Warning: This is harder than you think! Let’s just say I underestimated this hike. And probably overestimated myself for this type of trail.

Hiking Divas #5 Intense Inclines

Peak Mount Sizer Group   Trailhead Henry Coe State Park at 9100 E. Dunn Ave. Arduous without a doubt. It never seemed to get easier. Glad there was tree cover and I saw at least 12 deer along the way. Mount Diablo was brutal because of the heat and lack of tree cover and the […]

Forget your knees behind

Peak Mount Sizer Group   Trailhead COE headquarters This hike was seriously grueling, especially the “shortcut” which is insanely steep. Jackass trail portion of the trail was very scenic and exciting too since most of trail was very faint and it felt like walking in wilderness. You have the mountains to yourself because there’s hardly […]
