Despite the wetness, this is prime hiking season! So join me as I test out my new backpacking gear. :-D

Street parking at the destination can be pretty limited, so please carpool!

If you need a carpool, I'm offering a couple of seats in my car. You can meet me at the West Oakland BART station at noon. Message me to confirm: 310-five,three,one-0531

Notes  
Rock City is a popular destination with lots of small caves and climbable rock structures and features beautiful wild flowers. The trail is accessible year-round.

We'll start at the Summit Trail Head, keeping right to avoid the Lower Bridge Loop.
The Lower Bridge Loop will later merge with the trail, so turn right at the next fork.
Follow the Summit Tail to the Live Oak Camp Ground, and turn left when you hit pavement.
Follow the pavement for 100 yards and turn left on Laney's Landslide trail.
Laney's Landslide trail emerges onto a fire road, but at that same point take a sharp right onto the Rock City Trail.
Follow the big rocks to the right for the great views!
