Event Notes:

The hike is about 6 + miles through forest and grassland. The big hill is tough but doable. I borrowed this hike from a good friend. I hope she shows. Hiking along the reservoir is really nice. Porta potty at the start. Bring your water. I doubt if dogs are allowed, so assume they aren't. I need your EBMUD hiking permits. We are allowed 3 guests, so just show up if you don't have one.

This is about a 6 mile hike and for the most part, just gradual inclines (mostly gently rolling hills), although there is a pretty tough 1 mile climb between miles 4 and 5. A hiking permit is required for this trail.
