Hiked the Volvon Loop, around Bob Walker Ridge, eating lunch at the top. Saw cows, turkey vultures and markings from boar digging, along moist areas. Some moss, lichen and mistletoe, amongst the Oaks and Manzanita. It was an overcast day, with periods of sunlight. Grand vista from the top. there were open bathrooms at the trailhead and along the trail. Many bicyclists were seen along the bike path, leading to the park, from Livermore, and a couple bicyclists were seen, resting at the trailhead. No poison oak was noticed and trails were well maintained, the width of a car. Hiked with a group leisurely, Sunday, 2/4/1018, about 3.5 hours, up Coyote, Stone Corral, to the top on Volvon Loop, and down Valley View, Blue Oak, Volvon, Prairie Falcon and Condor Trails. there were several other hikers and a few dogs. Large parking lot had many cars but even more spaces available than used. No ticks but I made a point to follow the posted advice at the trailhead, to not sit under the Oaks, since it was a temperate, mostly overcast day.

Good hike above and through the fog on a Winter day. Got 2 ticks on arms, may have been from my off-leash dog.
