Event Notes:

We will take the Corral Spring trail to Castanoan and then on to Borges Ranch. We will return via Briones to Mt Diablo. Should be about 6+ miles and is not difficult. It is dog and horse friendly. All fire roads. No services at the start but toilets and shelter at Borges Ranch. Also small animals. All sun, hopefully. Remember to exit Ygnacio at Walnut Blvd not Walnut Ave. Very close to 680.
