I'm not ready for some football, how 'bout you?
|Ridge Trail, Castle Rock State Park|
Those of you in the North Bay -- stay in the North Bay. This is a great opportunity to explore parks and preserves in Sonoma and Napa. Sugarloaf, Mount St. Helena, North Sonoma Mountain, Annadel, and Jack London all are great choices.
East Bay, I'm picturing you on quiet back roads, traveling to Mount Diablo, Round Valley, Chabot, Del Valle, or Sunol.

Peninsula hikers -- you know the freeways? Avoid them. Take surface streets and county roads away from Santa Clara, to the Santa Cruz Mountains and Windy Hill, Long Ridge, Portola Redwoods, or Castle Rock.
South Bay peeps -- shelter in place? Maybe. Or get up and at them early and head south away from Santa Clara, to Grant, Henry Coe, Sierra Azul, Uvas, or Calero.
|Batteries to Bluffs Trail in San Francisco|
San Franciscans? I plan to stay off the roads completely, or maybe take a little trip somewhere in the City, like Mount Sutro, Batteries to Bluffs, or Lands End. If coerced I might consider driving a few miles to a destination such as the Headlands, San Bruno Mountain, or Montara Mountain.
Timing is sure to be important. I would suggest leaving early and planning your return trip to happen during the Superbowl (it starts at 3:30). Stay safe and sane!
