Event Notes:

We will start from the main staging area at the end of Bollinger Canyon Rd. We take Bollinger Creek to Calaveras Ridge to the Peak. After resting, we return via Las Trampas Ridge to Chamise and back to the staging area. Chamise is a steep descent so hiking poles are helpful. Hike is 5 miles and about 1,000 ft of elevation. Mix of sun and shade. Dog friendly. Water and restrooms at the staging area.

Trail Notes:

This hike is easier than the Remington hike ( 770' elevation gain, and 4 miles total). Definitely easier than Wall Point. Parking is free. Restrooms and water at the trailhead. When we get to Las Trampas Peak, we will show the Wall Point hikers the view of that trail. Weather should be good.
