"Remote but lovely"

I didn't even know that the town of Sunol, California, existed until very recently, but it is nestled in some of the loveliest hilltop East Bay hiking around. This sleepy town, situated just about 50 minutes from San Francisco, seems like a peaceful alternative to the busy, hustle-bustle city life.

Don't let the name fool you - this is simply an extension of highway 84 in Fremont. I got lost several times over trying to find the place, and should have just stayed on 84. Presuming you find it, the winding road offers some beautiful hillside views and vistas. Just be prepared to lose cell phone reception, depending on how far east you venture. Happy hiking!
