Event Notes:

This is about an 8 mile loop, with 1400 feet of mostly gradual climbing. The hike offers a nice mix of open vistas and shaded valley trails. We will hike from the Macedo Ranch trailhead to Wall Point Road, then up the Ridge View Trail to Wildcat Group Camp for a snack or lunch break. We'll return down Barbeque Terrace Rd to Stage Rd, then loop back toward Macedo on Dusty Road. Parking at Macedo Ranch is $6, and you will need to have exact change.

This is like a Remington plus hike. A little bit further, 6 miles vs 5; a lttle bit higher, 1,200' elevation gain versus 800', but the views are better! Hike duration is 2+ hours. Wall Point is a ridge that overlooks Blackhawk on the right, and looks up at Mt. D. on the left. Wall Point is in Alamo. Bring your camera! Bring the exact change for the parking fee.
