So with the newly opened up Mt. Umunhum I think VCLG should now make it a 4 mountain run. Meet up in LG at usual time maybe at LG Diner then Umunhum, Hamilton, Diablo, Tam and be done by 6pm.

I never really considered 3peaks to be all that challenging even when I did it on a fiddy, but it was fun none the less. And now with another peak it will be that much funner.

Currently the road up to Umunhum is the nicest in the bayarea. I have been commuting on it for the last couple weeks.

So what do you say VCLG, four peaks next year?

It might be better to have it first Saturday of July instead of August. I'm thinking closer to the summer solstice for more daylight hours.

First Saturday in July is too close to another holiday where a lot of people leave town.

Four Peaks sounds like a good day out.

Assuming I've got everything correct, it seems the route might look something like this (original google maps URL broke formatting, so here's a bit.ly redirect):

Although one might want to travel different roads to enjoy the scooter experience.

So the google portion from LG diner to Mt Umunhum to Mt. Hamilton works. From there just follow the three peaks ride round the back side of Hamilton. If meeting up at 6am when LG diner opens and KSU at 7 we should be able to catch the group meeting at Zamora's up on Hamilton.
