Comments: Bay Circuit Trail - Appleton Farms to Willowdale SF

Great weather day to do a another 10 mile section hike of the BCT from Appleton Farms to Willowdale SF on Rte. 1. Trail very well blazed Through Appleton Farms although from Parking lot just stay along fence and eventually you will run into the trail. Nice to hike through Bradley Palmer SF and Willowdale SF. Was good not to have to make the long drive back from the Whites, home by early afternoon for a relaxing Sunday.
