Hike/Park Description:
The weather was still mild and we hadn't been here for a few years, so in spite of some threats of rain we decided to take a chance on this local park. Luckily the weather stayed dry and 7 of us trudged up Hulet Hornbeck Trail and took our usual Franklin Loop for a nice 4.5 mile hike. We were rewarded with some great Carquinez views, Watched an oil tanker leave port during lunch, and found some new flowers.
 

See our Park page for more information.
