Climbing With San Jose “MidWeekers” – BionicOldGuy

We did an 8 mile plus hike with near 1500 toes of elevation acquire in Santa Teresa park. The hike began on the Bernal-Gulnac-Joice Ranch entrance to the park. We hiked from there up and over to the primary car parking zone, then continued on the rocky ridge path to Coyote peak, then looped again to the beginning. It was a terrific hike on an exquisite fall day. The one drawback for me is that there have been numerous steep downhill sections which I’ve turn out to be unaccustomed to. This led to numerous soreness in my legs over the subsequent couple of days. I’ll both need to keep away from these or do them extra typically so my muscle tissues get used to them.
