A hikers choice of either a moderate 7.2-mile 1200-foot elevation gain hike or a longer 9.5-mile 1600-foot elevation gain hike from the Valle Vista staging area in Moraga to Redwood Regional Park. Route will be Redwood Trail, East Ridge Trail, Prince Trail and Stream Trail to Orchard area where we will stop for a rest/snack stop. The shorter hike will return via the Canyon Trail, East Ridge Trail and Redwood Trail to the Valle Vista staging area. The longer hike will continue to the fish ladder, Bridle Trail, Orchard Trail, West Ridge Trail, past the fish ladder, and Canyon Trail, East Ridge Trail and Redwood Trail to the Valle Vista staging area. Restroom at the staging area and water and restrooms at Orchard area. EBMUD permit required, but there should be enough permit holders to cover those who may not yet have one. Note that listed driving directions should specify about 5.8 miles, not 3+ miles after turning onto Moraga Road. Location for google map directions is: EBMUD Valle Vista Staging Area. Dogs OK, but must be on-leash on some Redwood Park trails.
