April 12, 2009 (Sun) - Murietta Falls, Ohlone Wilderness, CA. 12.3 mi / 4000'

[ Index | Map | Signite Photos | Other hikes ]

It was a perfect day for a hike to Murietta Falls from Lichen Bark parking area in Del Valle Regional Park, through the Ohlone Wilderness. It was sunny with an occasional breeze and pretty perfect temperatures. The grueling trek (12.3 mi, 4000' elevation gain, see trail map with calculations here) was made more bearable by the beautiful wildflowers. We saw probably at least 30 different varieties from shooting stars to indian brush to buttercups to fiddlenecks, larkspurs, and on and on. The Murietta falls itself was almost dry but the hike had been worth the intense workout. Timewise, we took about 6 hours (including breaks): 9:55am to 3:45pm.

Also see the same hike from 2008.
