Happy Monday Everyone, This Saturday we'll be in the Napa area for a 5 mile hike. Although it's shorter than our usual treks, it will take you a little longer than a normal 5 miles. Afterwards for those interested, we'll be visiting V. Sattui for wine-tasting and to eat. They have a deli available and also a BBQ on the weekends. Please remember shoes with good traction, water or a sports drink with electrolytes, a snack for before, during and/or after and your whistle. Carpooling is strongly recommended as the parking is minimal but we should all fit as long as we are on time and are courteous so someone else can park next to us. Since it's a state park, there's a parking fee ($8). Please bring cash and if the booth isn't manned, pay at the station that is to the right once you enter. Once you pay, drive straight ahead and you'll see a few parking spaces at the visitor center, then the next area of parking will be at the trailhead which is Redwood Trail and you can park on either side of the road. Pass that area, you will see parking areas on both sides of the road all the way down to the bathrooms. Please park at a 90 degree angle. Please copy and share the link for the event to invite your friends or members that you notice were not invited due to Facebook policy. If you have any questions, please ask before the morning of. Make it a great week everyone and remember to stay active during the week so these hikes will seem like walks in the park on the weekends. Appreciate you all and we'll see you soon. ***DRIVING DIRECTIONS*** From Oakland area...
