Matt, Noe and I all met up at the Winchester Light Rail Station in January 2023, and walked up the Los Gatos Creek to Vasona Reservoir. After Vasona we headed south into the Sierra Azul.
The next morning, we opted to take a 10 mile detour to climb Mt. Umunhum, which proved to be a worthy side trip. Mt. Umunhum has a 70 ft. tall box on top which is visible from the whole South Bay. The views are panoramic and spectacular. We made a friend on the hike down and the miles went by quickly.
Before we knew it, we were walking across the Alamaden Valley. Next, we hiked through the Santa Teresa Hills to our destination: the Santa Teresa Light Rail Station. From there it was a relaxing train ride back to Winchester Light Rail where we started.
