  • Sunday, February 22, 11am, Wunderlich Park Hike ‘n’ Stroll and Beer with Kol Emeth Young Adults

    11am.                         Wunderlich Park, 4040 Woodside Road, Woodside.

    11:15 sharp.              Hike takes off. Don’t be late.

    1pm.                           Alice’s Restaurant, 17288 Skyline Blvd, Woodside. (Rain cancels the hike but not Alice’s.)

    Jews’ Next Dor, the young adult group of Congregation Beth David (Saratoga) and the young adult group of Congregation Kol Emeth (Palo Alto) are going for an 90 minute easy hike and stroll in Wunderlich Park, followed by conversation and beers at Alice’s Restaurant. No, not that Alice’s Restaurant, but just as much fun. Alice’s is the kind of establishment that attracts biker gangs, yuppies, and granola crunchies alike. It’s a biker place with bruschetta on the menu. Wunderlich Park features redwood forest, open meadows, beautiful oaks and madrones. The trail is hilly but not really steep, and we’ll hike at a pace that is mellow, groovy, and conducive to conversation.  Event covers 5 miles, with 600 feet of elevation. Admit it.  You want to get out. The woods are beautiful, and the air smells great. Hiking boots and a bottle of water recommended but sneakers okay.  We’ll have a few extra water bottles in case you forget yours. RSVP to jewsnextdor[at]gmail.com.

    Directions: To reach Wunderlich Park, take Woodside Rd. (Hwy 84 West) exit from I-280.  Go 2.7 miles west towards the hills.  Look for the small brown entrance sign on your right. This sign is easy to miss, so note your odometer at I-280. When you get to the parking lot, look for the guy with the clipboard. Parking is free but can be tight, so carpooling is encouraged. After the walk, come for beer, silliness, and good conversation at Alice’s Restaurant, just up the road at the intersection of Hwy 84 and Hwy 35 (Skyline Blvd).
