City: Orinda/Lafayette Park: EBMUD
This is a beautiful hike that all of us can enjoy. I would rate it easy+. It is through rolling hills. I will arrange for both the shorter and longer versions. It is 100% sun. Wouldn't that be nice. Bring your EBMUD hiking permits. We have room for guests if you don't have one.Contact: Andrew Kincaid
From Hwy 24 in Orinda, take the Orinda exit and go 2.2 miles northwest on Camino Pablo to a junction with Bear Creek Rd. From the intersection of Camino Pablo and Bear Creek Rd (light), turn onto Bear Creek Rd. About 1+ miles to the staging area on your left. Drive slow , it's easy to miss. The staging area is about 2-3 miles BEFORE Happy Valley Road. If you pass Happy Valley Road, you've gone too far.
