City: Pleasant Hill Park: Iron Horse Regional Trail
This week marks the 10 year Anniversary of the opening of the Iron Horse Trail Overcrossing across Ygnacio Valley Road. Join us for a walk across it and hear of plans for a proposed similar crossing over Treat Blvd in the coming years.Contact: John Bondon
The Iron Horse Trail is a paved trail and relatively flat. This is a great trail for newbies and those with children. We will be crossing a number of roads aoong the way, however, most will be quiet residential streets, but there will be a few busier street crosswalk style crossings, so do be aware of that. Pets encouraged as well!
From Dublin/San Ramon, take Hwy 680 Northbound towards Walnut Creek/Concord. Or from Oakland/Berkeley take Hwy 24 eastbound towards Walnut Creek/Concord, merging onto Hwy 680 Northbound at Walnut Creek.
After the exit for Ygnacio Valley Road, take exit 48 for Treat Blvd and turn right at the light. Immediately get into the left hand turn lane and make the first left turn at the signal light for Oak Road, followed by a right turn at the light onto Las Juntas Way. Del Hombre Lane will be on your right after Jones Road.
Park along Las Juntas Way (where allowed), or in the Pleasant Hill BART lot. Check BART.GOV for latest policies on weekend parking.
If arriving via public transportation at Pleasant Hill BART, exit the station and head eastbound across the parking lot. You should encounter the Iron Horse Trail. Turn right walking along the trail heading towards the stop light at Treat Blvd. Stop and meet at the picnic tables.
