Event Notes:

This is a relatively easy hike through grassland hills and forests. Distance is 5+ miles and about 500 ft of elevation gain. No services at the start but there are at Borges. This hike is dog friendly. Enjoy the chickens at Borges. They are great beggars.

Trail Notes:

We will be doing an ~5 mile hike from the Livorna Rd trailhead to Borges Ranch (the place with the 2 parking lots). About 500' of elevation gain. I can double that gain if any hikers choose to do so. I think not. 99%sun. Covered picnic tables and flush toilets at Borges. Small animals too.

Directions to Trailhead:

From 680S, exit at Livorna Rd and go east (left) 1.5 miles to the trailhead on the left. From 680N, exit at Livorna and go east (right) to the trailhead. Bring picnic goodies. There are only 7 parking spots at the trailhead, so I encourage hikers to CARPOOL.
