Easy walk up  Sucess!

Quick early AM hike to Round Top before heading into Oakland for a meeting - easy walk up the paved road to the summit. TR is HERE

Volcano!  Sucess!

First explored this area as a kid,long before it was a park, and had no idea at the time it has the rich volcanic history that it does. As a so-called summit, well, between the trees and the antennas and all, it's a claustrophobic summit experience, but a short walk to one of the hilltop highpoints in the park to the east, and you'll get that feeling as you look over much of Contra Costa County.

Quick Walk  Sucess!

Quick trip on a sunny day. Park was pleasant enough but not quite as great as I'd hoped. Suppose there were just a few too many people and a lot too many antennaes. Went to Briones Park two weeks earlier and found it to be a lot more remote feeling (happened to be a slightly clearer day too).

On a wet spring day

The red volcanic ridges nearby look sweet, though - especially in contrast to the green hillside in spring.

If I remember  Sucess!

It was some time in the mid 90's. A lot of towers and trees and fences and not much of a view.
