Two-Heel Drive on Sanborn-Skyline Park

Tom Mangan (Two-Heel Drive) writes about one of my favorite local hiking areas:

Latest Hikes column: Sanborn-Skyline County Park. From my Hikes column at the Mercury News.

… A typical Saturday afternoon at Sanborn-Skyline might see a wedding reception, a family reunion and a half-dozen large cookouts all happening on the park’s main grounds. Busy, crowded, noisy. With an 8 a.m. sharp start, however, you might get to see a couple of young deer casually grazing within a stone’s throw of the park’s visitor center, as I did the last weekend in June. Quiet, calm – you know, what you go hiking to find.

One of my favorite “hikes with a climb” starts at Sanborn Park and ascends through forest (including some second growth Redwoods) to the ridgeline before traversing to Castle Rock State Park.
