2020/10/14 Biking Los Altos Hills
π 2020-10-14 01:01 in Exercising
Jennifer and I went for a bike ride that was a bit more involved, this time the lock we went to discover was far Los Altos Hills between the freeway and the hills. Lots of up and downs... (actually my GPS said we only did 24 miles in 7h, but we went up 3000ft)

We started by Rancho San Antonio:

Once we got to the top of Olive Tree Lane, where I thought from the map, we could connect to Chamise Trail, but no, the residents put a gate to stop people from going to a public road to a public trail. I had to find a pretty painful way around the fence, through the brush:

We then exited the park towards Los Altos Hills and a nice little private lake they don't like to share with others :)





lots of nice connecting paths between the streets in that area, very nice
