TikeHike in Joaquin Miller Park

2.0 mi 

Today was our first official TikeHike. We set off for Joaquin Miller Park in the Oakland Hills. My original plan was a 3.5 mile loop on the Sunset Trail and Bay View trail. But we had a little trouble finding the Sunset trail from the parking area and ended up going over some terrain that was a little steep for a toddler and a stroller, and I decided that plan had been too ambitious. So we just meandered up and down the Sunset trail for two miles.

The park was great for the dogs. Most of the other hikers had dogs too, and the trails wide enough that they weren't getting in anyone's way. There was good hiking for my 15 month old for a lot of the nice flat Sunset trail, but Calliope she was drawn to the sharp drop off. Adlai made it about a mile over a decent sized hill before he just wanted to ride in the stroller.

There was a fair bit of poison oak alongside the trail, but I think we avoided it. I brought our single BOB Revolution Stroller, and our lenny lamb carrier. We had to carry both kids for about a mile. The stroller worked well on the terrain, but the double stroller would have been too wide. It's hard for Calliope to snack in the carrier though, and she got a bit grumpy. I think I'll try the Osprey backpack next week.

The best part of the hike was when we stopped at the end to walk on some logs and climb through an amazing redwood tree. It's important with the little ones to have a good balance of outdoor play and actual hiking on our trips.

Mt. Mitchell to Deep Gap (Deep Gap Trail)

5.1 mi 

The Deep Gap Trail begins at Mt. Mitchell State Park with the Deep Gap Campground as the northern terminus.  The challenges begin from the trailhead marker as the trail winds through a series of wooded picnic areas and gravel paths.  It is not clearly marked which path is the actual trail and which leads to a picnic table.  Have fun with this and you will make it through the maze eventually.  Once you're off the gravel, the real trail begins.   It treks closely to the Black Mountain ridge line but there are plenty of rugged ascents and descents. The GPS came up with a little more distance than the park service for this trail but nor more than a half mile. We stayed on the trail strictly for the most part. This adventure was an out and back day trek in mid-September.  The weather was very cooperative as we enjoyed bright sunny skies with some mid-day and afternoon clouds.  While the clouds threatened of rain later in the day, we did not encountered any other than a few drops here and there.  Temperatures where in the mid-70s with refreshing low-70s as we assaulted each peak.The trip file only covers the trip out. Data was recorded with iPhone 4s and the EveryTrail Pro app. Cell service of some sort was available at many spots during the trip but 3G was only in a couple of places for darting seconds. So it might be reasonable to expect text service but voice or data was not highly successful. This trail is a major undertaking especially an out and back day trek. The pictures demonstrate the ruggedness of the trail. In contrast the climate, ecology, and prize-winning views are quite the reward. It is far more strenuous, in my opinion, than bothMitchell Trail or Old Mitchell Trail. If doing this in a day, plan to spend most of the daylight hours and make as much time early where the trail is easier. The journey offers plenty of rocky, rugged terrain which ventures through tall, old-growth forests with moss covered ground and fallen trees. Expect smells of evergreen in the cool air which is greatly appreciated as you catch your breath. A couple of natural rock cutins where folks have setup firepits make for great lunch or rest stops along the way. It appeared to be a popular trail. A couple of guys and their dogs were making and out and back from Carolina Hemlocks up Colbert Ridge to Mt. Mitchell and back and several others where camping at Deep Gap. One father and son were hiking to Bowlens Creek where they had a pick up arranged.

Mt. Tam- 4 Lakes Loop: Phoenix Lake to Cataract Falls

16.0 mi 

As part of getting going for the New Year, my dad John has pledged to do one longer day hike per week of at least 12 miles. The past few weekends have been at his favorite Point Reyes National Seashore, but this weekend I tagged along for a 16 mile hike in the Mount Tamalpais watershed.

I had ridden my mountain bike through some sections of our route, but had never hiked extensively in this section of Tam along the Northwest flanks of the mountain. Working from Gaia Maps online (see the route) we sketched out a route that we thought would be 12-13 miles and that we could hammer out in 6 hours or so. We just signed up for Gaia’s premium features, meaning we could create a route on their website and then sync and follow it on our phones, which was helpful.

Our Mt. Tam 4 Lakes Loop Hike- Totaling 16 Miles
At 6:30am we headed out through Ross to the parking area below Phoenix Lake. We could of started at the higher Bon Tempe Lake area and cut off a fair amount of to and back distance, but if memory serves, the MMWD rangers open the gates a sunrise. There was no one in the Phoenix Lake lot and we were waiting for the sun to rise as we prepped our day packs. I thought this hike was going to be a walk in the park, no problem. Well of course, my eyes are frequently bigger than my stomach in this regard. The map is not the territory, and I had as usual slapped together a great loop based on what I wanted to see, not the terrain. We started at around 100′ elevation at the parking lot and would climb from the MMWD lakes up the Cataract Trail to 1,700′, and the back down, taking just a hair under 8 hours, with a morning’s break for brunch.

The scenery at the lakes was beautiful, especially the first half of the hike. All the lakes were spilling thanks to December’s storms. January’s lack of rain has started to dry things out a bit, but the major streams were still following well, and Cataract Creek was still putting on quite a show. The hike back paid the loop penalty, there were some interesting sections, but a lot of drier pines and dead understory along the High Marsh trail in particular. The trail conditions were also not great for some of these trails, especially the Stocking Trail on the way back.

Mt. Tam 4 Lakes Loop Hike
Distance: 16.0 Miles
