60 Hikes in 60 Miles in 60 Weeks: Week Fifty-seven
Sunol Regional Wilderness
Sunol's Flag Hill

What it's like:
Sunol is a paradise of rolling hills, creeks, and fascinating rock outcrops. This loop is only 4 miles, but there is considerable elevation change. Be sure to bring plenty of water, as there is none at the trailhead.

Why now:
Golden sycamores glow along Indian Joe Creek Trail, and up on the high ridges grassland is bleached blond and valley oaks are shedding their leaves.

If you can't make it this week:
Spring at Sunol is hard to beat, but beware in winter when cows can muck up trails.

Insider tip:
Once we get some rain, consider visiting the Little Yosemite area of Sunol. It's an easy hike to a pretty little waterfall rushing down Alameda Creek.

Sunol is hike number 34 in 60 Hikes in 60 Miles: San Francisco (third edition)Read about this hike on BAHiker.
