San Jose, California
Murrieta Falls, Alameda County
We will be hiking part of the Ohlone
Wilderness Trail. We will start this hike early due to the length. The meeting
will be about 3 miles into the hike to give everyone an opportunity to attend.
Those who wish can return from here. We will continue another 3 miles and if we
are lucky see the falls. The falls are notoriously unpredictable and can only be
seen after a good rain. This whole hike does offer some amazing views.
