Weekly Events with Stroller Hikes (1)

Hello Mommies and Daddies!

Hopefully you’ve been staying cool. We escaped to Monterey yesterday
and enjoyed Dennis the Mennis Park, the Aquarium, and the lovely
Cannery Row trails, car show (a unique event), and cafes. It was a
treat to avoid the heat of our house.

Here are this week’s events:

Monday, September 8th at 9:30 am we’ll meet at John W Christian
Greenbelt. Amy and little Adelina will lead a speed walk / jog along
the lovely wide, paved greenbelt in Sunnyvale and Santa Clara. Dogs
allowed but be sure they can manage on a faster-paced walk/run. We’ll
take a break around the halfway point for the trip, to play at the
large playground for toddlers, along the greenbelt. Meet at the
pedestrian bridge on Ahwanee Avenue and San Junipero Drive (the bridge
is just NW of San Junipero Dr.). Here is a Mapquest Map of the
Starting Location
For more information about the trail, see the John W Christian
Greenbelt Webpage
If you’re running late, give Amy a call at 650-207-6556.

Wednesday, September 10th at 10 am we’ll hike at Rancho San Antonio in
Cupertino/Los Altos Hills. Depending on the needs of the group, we’ll
do an almost entirely paved, flat path, or a hilly dirt path, both
going to the farm, and possibly going past it. Meet at the upper
parking lot where model airplanes are flown (just past the entrance,
turn right, then left into the first parking area uphill from the
lower two). For more information or directions, see the Rancho San
Antonio Page
Sorry, dogs not allowed. This hike is at least half shaded. Kristen
and little Lillian will lead this hike; call Kristen at (408)410-7200
if you’re running late.

Thursday, September 11th at 9 am Jennifer and her little one will be
leading a hike around Campbell Park and Los Gatos Creek Trail. Meet by
the kiosk by the bridge in Campbell Park, located at the corner of
Gilman Avenue and E Campbell Avenue. The path is entirely paved, so
any baby transport will work. Jennifer comes with over a decade of
experience leading nature hikes, so come ready to learn a little about
the flora and fauna of the area. For directions and more information
about the trail, see the Los Gatos Creek Page
If you’re running late, call Jennifer at (408) 470-0463.

Thursday, September 11th at 4:30 pm we’ll hike Stevens Creek Trail
beginning from the Yuba Trailhead in Mountain View. There is plenty of
parking at the end of Yuba Drive! For more information, see Stevens
Creek Trail Page
We’ll hike to Easy Street and beyond, with a stop to play at Creekside
Park. Debbie and little Max will lead this hike – call 650-776-1082 if
you’re running late.

Friday, September 12th come out for the 24th Annual Moonlight Run and
Walk in Palo Alto! Stroller Hikes is not formally involved in this
activity. This is a well attended family-friendly activity sponsored
by Palo Alto Weekly. Several Stroller Hikes parents have attended with
their babies and toddlers in the past. The event takes place at Palo
Alto Baylands and Byxbee Park, along the wider and flatter trails in
the area. Water stops occur along the two courses; one 5K, and the
other a USAT&F certified 10K. Pre-registration is $20 including a bib
number and a T-shirt while supplies last (after Sept 7 late
registration is $25), and children 12 and under run free (shirts for
them are $10, with adult small being the smallest size). For more
information or to register online, see The Moonlight Walk and Run
Webpage (http://www.paloaltoonline.com/moonlight_run/). Max and
Debbie, Mimi and Lily, and other friends will be there to do the 5K
Walk, which is early enough not to mess up bedtime too much!

Also don’t forget, coming up:
Sunday, September 21st come join Stroller Hikes and others for the 3rd
Annual Family Picnic in support of Blossom Birth Services, a
non-profit in Palo Alto. The event is free and runs from 11 am to 2 pm
in Palo Alto’s Mitchell Park (Palo Alto). Festivities include
award-winning Andy Z, a children’s musician, plus ice cream for a
sundae bar. Bring a sack lunch and a blanket or chair and come to join
in on the fun. Raffle tickets will be sold at the event for hundreds
of dollars in prizes, including sports gear, baby carriers, children
entertainment and education center certificates, pampering products
for mom, and more! For more information, see Blossom’s Flier for the
Event (http://blossombirth.org/donate/campaigns_picnic.html). Stroller
Hikes is a sponsor of the event.
