Used the Aquinas Trail in reverse from Sheldon Road to access Lexington Vista Serenity Trail portion. Skipped the Montevina section. Shortened the hike and put the climb at the start. No parking on Sheldon Road so need to find spot on Overlook or below. Unexpectedly saw a banana slug on the Serenity Trail/road today, August 6, in the chaparral? Not a redwood or drop of rain in sight? First time spotted a banana slug outside the redwoods? (See photo)

The view walking out was great. Parking is very limited.

Great views during the entire hike of San Jose all the way up to Oakland in certain areas. The end looks over the mountains and is a good place for lunch, but it’s all up hill back to parking.

This is a good hike by Aquinas & Serenity trails from Montevina Road trail head to Lexington Reservoir vista point. Admittedly, not the best of vista points, this hike still is a fine one to undertake in fall or spring seasons. Detailed Blog: https://www.kanvz.com/suresh/canvas/1503609657525
