Crystal Springs Hike with MIT and CMU

Please join us for a lakeside stroll with CMU, MIT, and Harvard Alumni clubs

Tickets: Free, but please register HERE.

Where: Sawyer Camp Trail, (Skyline Blvd & Crystal Springs Rd,) in San Mateo

When: November 10th at 10 am 

This hike is pretty civilized, what with one part having park benches and the paved trail with a dashed yellow line down the middle (there's even a speed limit!). Despite the civilized location, the Sawyer Camp trail is quite lovely. It brings you right up to the gorgeous Crystal Springs and San Andreas lakes -- you know, the ones you see along I-280. Even for the Bay Area, this area is exceptionally beautiful.

Highlights include the 600-year-old Jepson Laurel tree.

Please note Sawyer Camp Trail is wheelchair accessible, but off limits to dogs.There are restrooms available along this trail. And participants can tailor the length of this hike to their liking by turning back at any point in the hike.

What to Bring:
The usual: water, lunch, and a snack. Rain gear and warm clothes, and/or a sunhat may be advisable depending on the weather.

See http://tinyurl.com/bhc2t3y for a Google map.

Take 280 north or south to exit 36, Black Mt. Rd/Haynes Rd, and turn west. At T junction, follow sign pointing left to Sawyer Camp Trail. Proceed 1.3 mi to trailhead on the right. Park along the street and meet inside the gate.

Parking is limited at the trail head, so carpooling is a good idea. Please contact the organizer if you're interested in carpooling.

Rain policy:

This being a paved path, light rain does not cancel. If it's forecast to rain significantly, the hike is off and we will send out an email no later than 8 AM the morning of the hike to all persons who have RSVP'ed.
