10-mile Hike to Steer Ridge, Gilroy
December 4, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Join Coe Volunteers on this 10-mile moderate hike. Elevation gain about 1600 ft. Lunch at a 360-view picnic area on Steer Ridge. It’s a big hike but we go at a casual pace with time to admire views and take photos.
We start at the Hunting Hollow entrance, then walk about 2 miles north on the scenic Hot Springs Road, along Coyote Creek. Head up the Spike Jones trail on the narrow, little-used Timm Trail side route. Pass Oak and Madrone forests. Be rewarded with views northwest to Pine Ridge, and Mt. Hamilton, and southeast to the Quien Sabe Range. Gradual descent on the Jim Donnelly trail.
Heavy rain cancels: Please check your email the night before.
What to bring: Hat, sunscreen, water, snacks/lunch, rain jacket, hiking poles.
