El Corte de Madera Creek / Skeggs Point Hike

Enticed to enjoy California's great weather given my return from the northeast, on Saturday, March 22nd, 2008, I hiked some of the northern half of El Corte de Madera Creek Open Space Preserve. Although I intended to follow this route, I took a wrong turn at some point and had to plan my own course. (Good thing I picked up a map at the entrance!) Over the course of three and a half hours, 6.3 miles, and one thousand feet of elevation gain, my route, strenuous at times, ended up taking me past many of the same sights as the one I originally intended. It was a pleasant, forested walk. I took a few pictures.

Plus, I got to see some pretty grand vistas from Skyline while driving to the park.
