Tortugas Mountain Wake-up Hike

April 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Sonoma Ranch Boulevard

A morning beat-the-heat hike! Come meet us at Tortugas Mountain (aka “A Mountain”, because it has a big “A” on it). It’s an urban mountain with many, many hiking trails to explore. Imagine the refreshing moment of overviewing the city with cool morning breeze in the shade at the mountain top. It’s a nice and quick workout to begin a day, and we will hike mostly in the shade (because we are early enough:)

Route
We will hike “Straight up” – This is the northern of the two trails on the west side of the mountain facing the city. It medium rocky terrain, medium incline. It is the quickest way up the mountain and reaches the observatory at the top.
