The toughest — but views are worth it

Peak Rose Peak Group   Trailhead Sunol Visitor's Center This is a great winter hike, when the sun is low and temperature is cool. I saw only a handful of people on the trail, all in the lower part between the trailhead and backpacker's camp. The climbs are not overly steep, but there is up-and-down […]

Not Everything Came Up Roses

Peak Rose Peak Group   Trailhead Del Valle This was one of the most difficult hikes I've ever been on! Going up up up took forever and the downs we're killer.

22 too many

Peak Rose Peak Group   Trailhead Del Valle I thought Mt Sizer was going to be my most challenging hike of the pack but this one beats it. If you dont realize how steep the trail is on the way up your knees will remind you on the way down. There is lots of poison […]
