May 11, 2017 by T.Mac Lee

The theme of our May outing is "spring training" as we gear up for our summer adventures with a practice hike on the Tennessee Valley trail system in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. We'll start off the hike with a climb up to Coyote Ridge, from where we'll have the option of three loops: a quick 4-mile loop around the Fox Trail; a 7-mile classic loop that includes Pirate's Cove; and a thigh burning 9.5 mile route that also includes the Old Springs Trail, Wolf Ridge Trail, and the Coastal Trail. So join us for a hike in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area on May 20, 2017. See photos from the day!
