At 3.9 miles long with approximately 1,500 ft elevation gain, this hike around Hogback Ridge Loop twice really packs a punch. It is a great option if you want to get in a quick workout with a substantial amount of elevation gain.
The purpose of this post is to help expecting moms sort through the options for maternity hiking clothes and other maternity activewear that is out there in order to decide what works best for their circumstances. I also share what options worked for me.
Grindstone Quarry Trail, an easy 2.8-mile trail, was one of my favorite hikes at Heil Valley Ranch until it was burned in October by the Calwood Fire. Looking back at these pictures breaks my heart a little, thinking that when this trail opens up, it will look very different. However, I look forward to the day when I can hike this and other trails at Heil Valley Ranch when they open up again, and when the vegetation grows back over the years.
