Sunny in Sunal

My goal for this Spring/Summer is to be outside more and to be more active so Saturday Nathan and I drove down to Sunol Regional Wilderness Park near Milpitas, CA and hiked to "Little Yosemite." We were debating making the drive since the trail according to the mileage we thought we calculated seemed to be super short, but the allure of a miniature Yosemite was too much and we took the plunge. The drive wasn't as long as we thought and after we got back to the car we both kept repeating how glad we were we came.

The park is honestly so beautiful, especially since it is springtime and the sun is finally out and all of the wildflowers are blooming. There was a point on the trail where there are so many flowers the air smells sweet! Little Yosemite is definitely little in comparison to the real thing but it is a hidden gem that seems like it wouldn't normally ever exist. There are a bunch of little cascading waterfalls over huge boulders that form little ponds almost and they're perfect for dipping your feet in and cooling off after the hike up. It's only Tuesday but I'm wishing it was already Saturday so I could go back haha! Hope you had a fabulous weekend and your week is off to a great start :)

Hiking Info:

Total Distance Round Trip: Just under 4 miles
Mostly in the sun, but spots of shade are frequent enough to not be sweltering.

Park at the Visitors Center at Sunol Regional Park
Cross the bridge and turn right on Indian Joe Nature Trail.
Continue onto Canyon View Trail. You will see a sign for Little Yosemite and Ohlone Road and follow the arrows.
To reach the water, you will need to climb down the short cliff area but there are steep trails that make it easier.

Watch for Rattlesnakes though, we saw two!!
