Ascent Trip Report

Went to hike the Northern part of Garin Regional Park in Hayward and head towards Garin Peak and Vista Peak. Both can be reach via the North end (over flow) parking lot and heading North on the Vista Peak Loop Trail. This trip was approximately 3 miles and it took me about 1:17 minutes with 812’ in elevation gain. The views were spectacular.

It appears as if I was not at Vista Peak and will need to go back to catch it. Not sure how I could miss it, but it's a good reason for a trail run soon.

The USGS marker was missing from the top of Garin Peak. It’s to bad people have to do that. It’s alway nice to get a photo of these markers. There is another USGS marker located about 50’ West from the top of Garin Peak.

Follow the EBRP maps and you will not have any problems with the hike (I should have paid closer attention and picked up a map).
