Ascent Trip ReportLeisurely loop around the lush, green, flowery Maguire Peaks. Welch Road is quite narrow with limited parking at each of the three Maguire trailheads, only one of which was opened--the Upper one. The Lower and Middle were both closed due to "storm damage."
Don't forget to visit the Sunol kiosk on Greary Road so you can get a permit to park on Welch Road. Otherwise, risk being ticketed.
