Upper and Lower Loop Over Night Trails - Fall Creek Falls

27.1 mi 

We knocked this trip out over 2 days and 1 night. The Rangers warned us these trails have several downed trees to work through.

We started from the parking lot with our day packs. We decided to tackle the upper loop because it is the easiest of the two. With that said, the Upper loop is moderately strenuous at times.

You hike in almost a mile before you get to the actual loop. We took a right at the fork to begin the loop. This choice provides a nice gradual descent, followed by a slow climb which was surprisingly easy on my knees. You cross a couple creeks before you come to some camp sites about 3/8 of the way through this loop. This great a good spot to camp if you want make this a 3 day 2 night journey. We continued across a bridge and continued to finish the loop.

We hiked the mile back out to our car in the parking lot and switched to our much heavier overnight packs. We made great time knocking out 14 miles in just over 5 hours.

We headed back down to start the lower loop. Warning this trail has a lot of downed trees. The trail is generally easy to follow, and paths have been made around many of the downed trees. Watch out for snakes hiding in the fallen trees. This trail is rated difficult!

You again hike in about about a mile to begin this loop. We tooka right to head toward camp site #1. We made it to camp site # 1 about 4:45pm. We decided to make camp here at mile 16.3. It was 2.5 miles from the parking lot to camp site 1. There is a creek you pass right before you head up the hill to the camp sites. That's your water source. The campsite has an outhouse, but it's old and mice infested. The area around the outhouse is trashed!

It's important to rest up really well before journeying further past camp site 1. It's about 2.5 miles between campsite 1 and campsite 2. After exiting campsite 1 you are quickly met with a steep descent. This is followed by an equally tough and steep climb. Its rocky and its shades of the Fiery Gizzard at times (but not quite as torturous). This part is an ASSKICKER!!

At one point you may have thought you made it to campsite #2, unless it's clearly marked as camp site #2 then it's an illegal campsite.

After you reach camp site 2 you have about 7 miles left to hike, but it's much easier than the earlier sections.

From camp site 2 and on you are afforded with incredible views of different water falls. After crossing several bridges you will walk by the nature center. The loop ends and you walk a mile back out and you've just completed mile 27!!!!

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.
