Special instructions   Sunday Morning is full of exciting things . . . first a Breakfast at Hobee's nearby featuring their legendary coffee cake (e-vite here: http://www.evite.com/app/publicUrl/IFNAQBDFHAERGPJRTMDB/waffles1209)

Then we're going to burn it off by going on a walk around the water on the nice and flat Shoreline Drive Hike.

Directions  From US 101 in Santa Clara County, exit Shoreline Boulevard (exit #399). Drive northeast about 1 mile on Shoreline Boulevard, through the gates into Shoreline at Mountain View. Once past the entrance gate, drive about 1 mile to the parking lot at the end of the road (near the lake).

Lots of parking in several lots. Designated handicapped parking is available, and trails are wheelchair accessible. Wheelchair-accessible restrooms, drinking fountains, and pay phone in the building near the lake; there are other phones, fountains, restrooms and portable toilets at a few other locations in the park. Santa Clara VTA services Shoreline's western edge via buses 47, 104, and 520.

Where  Shoreline Lake in Mountain View, CA

Notes  "Shoreline at Mountain View (that is the somewhat snobbish but official name) is Paved path around the lakemore than a park, it's a recreation extravaganza, with a golf course, restaurants, a boating lake, kite flying field, and miles of trails. All the facilities are well used, but most people seem to show up at Shoreline for a walk or run. You'll see seniors and young moms, high school runners, and tech folks on their lunch hours, taking advantage of the flat paved and dirt paths around the lake and bay.
A string of parks and preserves allows hikers to explore the bay to the north and south, with Shoreline as a logical staging area. The Bay Trail ties together Mountain View's Shoreline with Palo Alto's Baylands, and when new segments are completed the trail will reach Sunnyvale's Baylands. Hikers can stick to the Bay Trail, which runs rather uncomfortably close to the highway at times, or can choose to walk along the levee trails which stretch out to meet the bay. "
