Event Notes:

(there should be maps available for everyone) from the FREDERIKSON Lane staging area take the Stewartville trail south into the park. This is an easy moderate loop hike with only a couple of hills to get us breathing. Will be stopping at Stewartville backpack camping site for a snack and potty break B 4 heading on. At the top of the ridge we will pick up the ridge trail and head east dropping down on the Contra Loma trail to get back to the starting point. Bring water and snacks, dog friendly hike....
