Hike at Sweeney Ridge

SURPAS Sports is planning a hike to Sweeney Ridge ( on Sat April 1st. The total distance for the full loop is about 5-1/2 miles and it is estimated to take about 3 hours. Please be prepared for some steep areas, but overall the trail should be relatively moderate. The trail is mostly exposed so we will plan on an afternoon start. We will meet at Stanford at 12:30pm (for carpools) or the Trailhead at 1:30pm (more details will be provided as we approach the date). Also, please consider driving a carpool for your fellow post docs that don’t have their own transportation.

Dogs are permitted on the trail (ON-LEASH ONLY AT ALL TIMES). If you are considering brining your dog please email John Hegarty ( to discuss further details and requirements. Remember, your dog will be your responsibility throughout the duration of this trip (on and off the trail). Additionally, this is a group trip so if your dog has any behavioral or socialization issues he/she should not come. 

Join us and enjoy a great hike with fellow postdocs!
