Hike Description:

Here's my tried and true hike for threatening weather. Showers or rain are expected Tuesday, so I've picked this two-parter in case it becomes more than showers.

Pulgas Ridge Open Space Preserve and Edgewood County Park hike
Tue February 15 10:30am-3pm

4 or 8 miles, 800 or 1600 feet elevation gain

Meet 10am at Homestead Square shopping center in Cupertino. Meet next to Homestead Rd. near the Homestead Square sign.
or meet 10:30am at the Pulgas Ridge parking lot (directions below)

Edgewood County Park info http://www.co.sanmateo.ca.us/smc/department/home/0,,5556687_12305995_12328420,00.html
Pulgas Ridge info http://openspace.org/preserves/pr_pulgas_ridge.asp

Here's a great combination hike, with gentler trails than I typically lead. We'll start at Pulgas Ridge, where we'll hike up, down and around through this Open Space preserve. Then we'll head across Edgewood Rd. to Edgewood Park, where we'll have lunch near the restrooms. After lunch, we'll hike up around the ridgetop, then back to the cars. You can join us for some or all of it. Bring a lunch or snack and your favorite beverage. Partial shade in both parks.

Driving directions to Pulgas Ridge

from I280: take the Edgewood Rd. exit toward the bay. At the bottom of the hill, turn left on Crestview Dr., then a quick left on Edmonds Rd. Follow Edmonds Rd. about 1/4 mile to the parking lot on the right.
From 101 south, take the Brittan Ave. exit. Follow Brittan across El Camino and Alameda, then up the hill to the top at Crestview Dr. Left on Crestview, then right on Edmonds Rd. just before the bottom of the hill. Follow Edmonds Rd. about 1/4 mile to the parking lot on the right.
From 101 north, take Whipple Ave. exit away from the bay. Follow Whipple a couple miles to the light at Alameda. Right on Alameda to the next light at Edgewood Rd. Left on Edgewood for about a mile to Crestview Dr. just before Edgewood begins to climb. Right on Crestview, then a quick left on Edmonds Rd. Follow Edmonds Rd. about 1/4 mile to the parking lot on the right.
