Saturday, May 7, 2016 Continuing our string of 'special' trail runs, this month we meet at R&W Vineyards, high above Cupertino and shuttle from there to the rarely used no-parking allowed trailhead at the 'end' of Montebello Rd.
Miles of well maintained open ridge top trails in Montebello & Skyline OSPs reward with constantly changing expansive vistas. Returning to the trailhead, we shuttle back to PARC members Bill & Noel's R&W Vineyards for a post-run gathering. Even if not running, consider joining us before the event to help shuttle runners to the trailhead. You can then stay at the Vineyards for coffee (etc) and enjoy the astounding view of Silicon Valley. Also, whether running or not, PARC members and guests are welcome to join for the very special post run gathering (about 11am).
Carpooling is encouraged: carpools depart at 7:50am from the MV Costco parking lot from the Costco parking lot on Rengstorff Avenue in Mountain View near 101. Pls arrive by 7:40am so that we can organize the rides. We meet in the area of the parking lot that is close to the McDonalds.

We encourage runners of approximately the same ability and ambition to form groups and be accountable for group members.
There will be a very nice gathering after the run, you are welcome to bring something to share, but not necessary as R&W Winery and PARC are providing some goodies.
