Event Notes:

Alternate Thursday hike: An early morning workout hike with great views of Mt. Diablo. We will start promptly at 7:00 a.m, going to the left (as we face the hills) up Cardiac hill and around the rim trail, down to the reservoir, across the dam, and then back up to the rim at the first trail up after the playground on the left, then all the way back around to the starting point. This is a quick workout hike with an intent to finish within two hours: 5.5 miles and 950 feet elevation. Those who wish to take longer and/or extend the hike with a loop around the reservoir base are very welcome to do that on their own, but the leader will need to finish within the two hours.

Trail Notes:

The Rim Trail is a dirt trail that circles the Lafayette Reservoir. This hike is almost 5 miles in length. Unlike the lower paved route around the reservoir, the rim trail has a lot of ups and downs, including some rather steep grade portions. Overall this trail is fairly moderate for the avid hiker, but could be quite challenging for the novice or newbie. There are two stops where water and toilet facilities are available.
