Trip description: This afternoon stroll is less than 3 miles out and back, depending on how far we decide to go. The walk alternates between forest and chaparral. HKEK trail is a wildflower gold mine and flowers we may see include iris, blue dicks, larkspur, buckwheat, mint, silene and others. There are always manzanita, huckleberry, ferns, buckeye, and chinquapin. The hike is mostly easy, single-file. There is a short, steep stretch to reach and leave the trail and a few places where the trail itself is roots or rocks for a few paces.

Directions: Take the Sir Francis Drake exit off 101 north or south. Drive west to College Ave and make a left at the light. College turns into Magnolia Ave. Drive to the junction of Estelle and Magnolia. There is parking in the lot of several defunct stores. We will meet there to carpool.

Bring: Water, snack; hiking poles helpful

Rain cancels.
