New Year’s Resolution

I decided that my New Year’s resolution is to climb the ten toughest hikes in the Bay Area. I’ve been researching and I’ve come up with this list.

Berry Creek Falls Loop at Big Basin Redwoods State Park

  • 10.2 miles

Mount Sizer (Seizure??) Loop: Henry Coe State Park (Morgan Hill)

  • 15.6 miles

Murietta Falls via Ohlone Wilderness Trail (Livermore)

  • 11.9 miles

North Peak at Mount Diablo State Park (I did the Mitchell Canyon hike in preparation for Pico, Acores)

  • 10 miles

Robert Louis Stevenson State Park (Napa)

  • 11.2 miles out and back to the top of Mt. St. Helena, elev. change is 2,200 feet)

Mission Peak Regional Preserve

  • 6.2 miles

Dipsea Trail (Mt. Tam)

  • 14.2 miles round-trip (we don’t need no stinkin’ shuttles!)

It seems that any trail on Mount Diablo gets on the “toughest hikes” lists. Those would probably make up the rest, unless someone can make suggestions.
