flashlight/moonlight hike - foothill blvd area

There is no better way to unwind from a dreary winter workday than an evening foothills hike. There are three ridges and multiple routes to choose from above Foothill Boulevard near the "H" rock. Yak trax, micro-spikes, or similar lightly studded footwear are required (these are short but very steep hikes). Bring a headlamp or flashlight, though we seldom need it when we have the stars, the moon, and city lights (even if inversion is set in, we'll get above it). Dogs ok if prepared for winter conditions. Plan on a 5:30 p.m. departure and a 7:30 return.
