Mt Umunhum-Sierra Azule
December 4th, 2010
10:00 AM

The Place

The Mount Umunhum Area features the 3,486 foot mountain named after the Ohlone word for “resting place of the hummingbird.” Although there is no public access to the top of Mt. Umunhum, we will hike close to it on our way to Bald Mountain where we will hopefully have our meeting – weather permitting.

Walking the Walk

We will start off our hike on the fairly level Woods Trail for 2.7 miles to the Barlow Rd trail where we will gain most of our elevation in 1.5  miles. We will walk along the Mt Umunhum Rd for a short while to continue to the Bald Mountain Trail for .7 miles which will take us to Bald Mountain at 2,387 ft elevation. We will return the same way unless you would like a shorter version of returning via Mt. Umunhum Rd. The weather at this time is unpredictable, so please dress in layers and possibly rain gear!
