When we walked at Oak Valley last year we thought it was wonderful. This year, despite trying to take a different route and getting a bit lost, it was equally good, but with the added advantage of being able to enjoy a good lunch at The Pool Room after the exercise.
John was our leader and nobody could blame him for taking the wrong path, as the signs were confusing at best. It didn’t matter though as the farm is such a wonderful mix of field, forest and orchard, that no matter where one goes, it is still a great hiking experience and sixteen of us thoroughly enjoyed it.
The Pool Room is a beautiful mix of rustic and modern, with a well stocked deli at hand to whet one’s appetite. The wines were, as ever, top class and the food was good, although some veggies would have been appreciated. Man is not a carnivore, after all.
