While Paul and Benoit were exploring the North Grove, Joost and I drove the RV to the other end of Calaveras Big Trees State Park and hiked through the South Grove.  The hike was about 6 miles long and we were able to see many giant sequoias along the way, which always amazes me no matter how many times I see them (first time here, but I've seen them in Mariposa Grove...

The Monroe Ridge Trail
by chris on Oct 25, 2010
Coloma, California, United States
2.3 miles
The parking lot at Gold Discovery State Park was completely vacant, and there were no trail signs, which made getting started a bit difficult. After ending up at a junkyard and a dead end we finally managed to find the trailhead (it was well marked, a little further up the road).The 2.3-mile Monroe Trail was delightful and sprinkled with several nice picnic areas with some great views.  Before we knew it we...

Finally, we arrived at Folsom Lake State Recreation Area, our first stop along our tour! And it was closed. We expected the campground to be closed, but thought that we would still be able to drive in, but no luck. Instead we wrote a nice note explaining why we were there and walked down the road after we could drive no further. Luckily the Nature Tail was less than 0.5 miles further.We...

Paul and Benoit came storming down my Hill at 7:15 on Monday morning.  With my backpack, computer bag, and camera bag somewhat securely fashioned I ran across the street, opened the door, and threw my bags in just as the light turned green.  We had officially started our 5-day RV adventure that was sure to be unforgettable.We quickly learned two valuable lessons: cyclists in San Francisco HATE RVs, and RVs are extremely...

Today the EveryTrail team went on a hike at Mt Diablo State Park to test our new audio guides feature.  The hike was a solid 6 miles, and a bit more up and down than we expected going into it (and it was all very steep, so you have to watch your step).  We stopped at several places along the hike to listen to the audio notes about history and preservation of the area,...

New York City, New York, United States
5.4 miles
This was a family walk across the Brooklyn Bridge from Manhattan to Brooklyn on a Friday in May.  We had our 5-year-old with us, and all we had to tell him was that the "Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory" was on the other side of the bridge to get him excited for the walk.It was a mellow stroll across the river (and above the cars zooming in both directions), but it was warm and very crowded.

Sawyer Camp Trail run

Highlands, California, United States
6.9 miles
Part of the masterplan of getting in shape for bigger things I went for an early morning run with Andre on Saturday. Sawyer Camp Trail is always a great place to run, esp in the morning with the fog still hanging over the reservoir.I actually went back the same day with the family. It's a great place for kids to ride their bikes.

Squaw Valley Skiing - Best day of the year
by joost on Jan 28, 2010
Squaw Valley, California, United States
41 miles
We decided that weeks of daily 7 AM iPhone meetings would offset a day outside of the office up in the mountains... In other words, a good excuse can always be found for a day trip when the mountains receieved an 8 feet dump, with sunshine predicted for the day. Paul, Dave, Nicolas and I took of at 5.20 AM and were back home around 9 PM.Highlights of the day included Main...
