60 Hikes in 60 Miles in 60 Weeks!In the Bay Area we like to joke that the first day of summer is Labor Day. That's when the tourist crowds start to fade, the weather is simply incredible, and golden light settles over our scenic landscapes. It's the perfect time of year to hike, for beginners and experts alike.
In that spirit, I'm starting a new fitness and hiking campaign: 60 Hikes in 60 Miles in 60 Weeks. Each week I'll select a hike from my book -- one that I think is ideal for the season (and I'll even include an alternate choice from my website). Hike it, then post your comments here. Follow in my bootsteps and in 60 weeks you will be a hiking superstar. It's a great way to get more exercise while exploring the Bay Area's trails.
