The long narrow drive up was the hardest part. I wished for my road bike!

I was out driving around the hills and stopped at the observatories. Parked and jogged down the road and up to the fire lookout.

We ran up this one after visiting the observatory. Take the telescope tour, it is quite interesting. Found 2 geocaches too. We kept going to Livermore, 70 miles of twisty road fun. Nobody even puked in my car :-)

Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2006


Expected it to be at least a bit of a climb, but realized that the drive up to the laboratory was much longer than the 20 minute hike (can't even be called a hike).
View from top was beautiful.

Date Climbed: Feb 2, 2002


Drove up with my two daughters, a long drive up Mount Hamilton Road from San Jose. My wife was out of town, and brought the girls up with me since I was taking care of them for the weekend. Easy 20 minute hike from the roadside just past Mount Hamilton Observatory.

Stopped off on the way home for a chance to play in the snow alongside the road.

Took the quick walk up after driving over from I-5. Not much in the way of hiking options to be had but still worth visiting to me as this has a fire lookout, is a COHP and is also a 3000' prominence summit [towards the bottom end of the list of the top 400 contiguous US summits for P]. Observatory is worth visiting as well.

Hiked up in mega overcast conditions after getting the "it's ok" from the Mt. Hamilton visitor's center (which probably counted for nothing!).
