The hike went through Loma Alta OSP, past the Big Rock to Lucas Valley OSP, along the Big Rock Ridge into Marinwood OSP (and the edge of Ignacio Valley OSP), then down into Lucas Valley and up into Terra Linda/Sleep Hollow OSP. Sound complicated? It was--we lost over 5% of the hikers along the way.
