Event Notes:

A 5 1/2-mile loop hike with an elevation gain of about 1200 feet that covers both sides of Las Trampas Ridge. Route will be via the Chamise, Mahogany, Trapline, Las Trampas Ridge, Del Amigo, Sulphur Springs, Las Trampas Ridge, and Bollinger Creek Trails back to the parking lot. Some steep sections, so poles would be helpful. We will take a short rest/snack stop at about the halfway point. Dogs welcome, off-leash OK on the trails. Water and toilets available at the parking lot.
