Event Notes:

Oyster Point

A moderate+ 7.3 mile, 1300 ft ele. gain hike from Finley Rd up to Oyster Point. This mostly shaded out-and-back hike takes us up into the Black Hills above Blackhawk on a beautiful single track trail. For extra credit (0.5 mile, +300 ft), one can climb up to the marker post.

This out-and-back route follows Finley Rd., Old Finley Rd., and Oyster Point Trails to the intersection in the meadow below Oyster Point.

Time permitting, and a sense of adventure, we may explore the end of Jackass Canyon on our return trip.

Please note: Tassajara Road is closed North of Fallon Rd to Windemere Pkwy. Please use this Google Maps link for directions from the South(I580).
