Admin note: Cody Reed appears to have the FKT on this route, according to Strava, in around 3 1/2 hours. The gpx provided has a couple obvious issues but can be updated with future attempts.

The biggest elevation gain in the bay area. In total, nearly 20 miles for the round trip, and 5,000 vertical feet. This is one tough hike. This out-and-back route can be hiked as a long day hike, or as an overnight backpacking trip. It begins and ends at Del Valle Regional Park on the outskirts of Livermore.



...note that the gate at the end of the parking lot is the start/finish location.
