Trail Notes:

This is a paved trail. Rather than starting at the staging area, which is often crowded and hard to find parking, we will start up trail a bit in a residential community. This will be an in and back hike, so you can turn around at any point along the route. Bathrooms are available at about the 5.5 mile mark at Moraga Commons park.

Total distance depends how much of the trail you decide to hike. One way distance to Saint Mary's College is estimated to be roughly 4 miles, therefore round trip would be approximately 8 miles if you turn around at this point. One way distance to Moraga Commons is approximately 5.5 mile, so round trip distance would be 11 miles. If you hike the full route from our starting point, however, your one way distance of 7.65 miles would yield a total round trip distance of 15.3 miles.
