Ascent Trip Report

The classic 19-mile Ohlone Wilderness Regional Tr through the Sunol and Ohlone Regional Wildernesses from the visitor center at Sunol Regional Wilderness on Geary Rd to Lake Del Valle. 9 of us started from the Sunol TH, hiking to Rose Peak, the half-way point, for a leisurely lunch, followed by the descent to Lake Del Valle. The cold beer hit the spot at the Lichen Bark TH after a warm day on the trail (91 in S.F.!). Several areas of beautiful wildflower displays.
