City: Walnut Creek Park: Shell Ridge Open Space
Please join us for this hike. It is relatively easy. We will have a special guest that I want you to meet. I will investigate the staging area for how much parking is there. Bring snacks to share with all at Borges Ranch. This is a different route to Borges.Contact: Andrew Kincaid
