Parking near the trailhead might be full, so consider parking at Portola Elementary which is a 10 minute walk (directions) from the Sweeney Ridge Trail entrance. Plan accordingly!
For students with siblings, feel free to walk with the grade of your choice.
Since the hike is taking place on a Saturday, students will need to be accompanied by an adult guardian.
The hike up will take 45 minutes (1.5 hours roundtrip) for an adult and can be steep in places. It is completely paved and there is a beautiful lookout half way up. If you or your student is tired, consider turning back after stopping at the lookout.
Bring water, dress in layers, wear comfortable shoes, and wear your mask.
Wear your Portola Hike-A-Thon shirt or other Portola spirit wear!
