A Walk for both: Moderate and Aggressive Hikers
Both moderate and hard-core hikers will likely be thrilled with Parts 1 and 2 of this walk. The hard-core, particularly those in training for the Yosemite trip in May, will likely welcome the steep grades, into and out of the Noe Valley, in Part 3.
Jim Dennis will accompany those that choose to bus into the Noe Valley. The bus ride offers some of the milder thrills of a roller coaster ride while at the same time offering panoramic views of the East Bay. Because some people may linger to more thoroughly explore the shops Jim may not be accompanying everyone back to the assembly point. But on the way down he will help prepare people for an independent return.
