Rockville Hills Walk - January 2019

return to index

On New Year's Day, nineteen of us met to walk at Rockville Hills Regional Park, in Fairfield, Solano County.  Rockville Hills is popular, and it is sometimes hard to find parking, because the endless rolling hills terrain is easy to access and a great place get a outdoor workout, as a walker or mountain biker.  

The day started out really cold & windy at the Davis park & ride, but once we were at the site and walking it became sunny, portending an auspicious start to a new year, let's hope.  We had a small Bay Area contingent of hiker relatives with us today.

note - the distant scenery in the photo of Raj includes Suisun Bay and Mt. Diablo, looking in a south-east direction.    

Most of us went 7.3 miles, with some walkers getting in another mile or so on the final leg.   

Out on the trail today, it was amazing how many passing-by hikers said "Happy New Year" to us, or we to them.
