Description: We'll do this hike:

It's 3.6 miles (not much elevation) and ~2 hours of hiking.  The hike is largely exposed but it should be nice since it's not too hot yet.  We may even see some wildflowers if the season has started by then.

What to bring: Lunch, water, sunscreen, layers! (it may get cold). 

Cancellation policy: Rain = cancelation.


The event is open to Stanford postdoc community, including family members and friends of postdocs (each postdoc can bring 1 guest). If the registration goes over 20 people, we will put further registrations on a wait-list and notify you of any openings.

Please feel free to contact us at if you have any questions. We are very excited to go hiking in Russian Ridge with you on February 20th!
