Joaquin Miller Hike

We went out for a short hike today since we ran Run San Ramon yesterday. We headed out to Joaquin Miller Park in Oakland for a 3.5 mile hike. We started at the trailhead for Sunset Trail off of Sanborn Road, took Sequoia-Bayview Trail to Cinderella Trail and back to Sunset Trail. We came across a few banana slugs on Sunset Trail and saw some views of the bay on the Sequoia-Bayview Trail. It was a foggy day but the views must be great on a clear day. We meant to come back on Chaparral Trail but the junctions aren't marked so we missed the turnoff and continued on Sequoia-Bayview Trail until we hit Cinderalla Trail. Most of the trail is shaded which makes it a great summer hike. Elevation change was only about 500' and on the trail you come across people hiking, biking, and trail running.
