Join us for a moderate difficulty 6-8 mile hike through a beautiful park

The Harvard Club of Silicon Valley invites HCSF to participate in a moderate difficulty 6-8 mile hike through beautiful Castle Rock State Park.

Castle Rock State Park is a land of sculpted sandstone, lush forests, and sweeping vistas. From one of the highest ridges in the Santa Cruz Mountains, park visitors enjoy hiking, backpacking, and horseback riding. Rock climbers explore the park's caverns and rocks, including the namesake Castle Rock. Plant-lovers come for California black oaks, knobcone pines, and high-elevation coast redwoods. The park’s 34 miles of rugged trails conveniently connect to an extensive trail system that links the Santa Clara and San Lorenzo valleys to nearby Big Basin Redwoods State Park and open space preserves on the Skyline to the Sea Trail.


Date: Saturday, May 19th
Time: 10:00am - 2:00pm
Place: Castle Rock State Park
15000 Skyline Boulevard, Los Gatos
