Story:
This is the longest trail of our senior hiking group, a 20 mile/6000' elevation gain day trip. This is a hard hike for any average hiker in any age group.

We parked our cars in Sunol Reginal Park. The family member of one of our group member took us to the starting point of the trail in Lake Del Valle State Park in Livermore.

The first accent is hard, from altitude of 500' all the way to Mt. Rose at almost 4000'. At the summit, we had our lunch, although the wind blowing really hard.

Again it was beautiful along the way because of a log of rain this year and the sunny day. On the way towards Sunol, we can see Mission Peak. Although the official Ohlone Trail includes the part to go over the Mission Peak, we did not pursued this option, which will add another 8 miles and 2000' to the elevation gain. We left the option for, maybe next year.

When we finally reached Sunol in 10 hours, some of of our group members are really tired, but still have high spirit. We had a simple supper prepared by one of our members, who stored the food in the car parked in Sunol. We all had a great day of hiking.
