Event Notes:

Redwood Stroll

Your choice of a moderately Challenging 7.2 mile, 1600 ft or 8.2 mile, 1700 ft hike from EBMUD Valle Vista into EBRPD Redwood Regional Park.

From Valle Vista the hike heads out the Redwood Trail to Redwood Regional where we begin a clockwise loop on East Ridge, Canyon, Stream, and Bridle Trails to short right turn on Stream Trail to our snack stop at Trails End.

After the break we head up Stream Trail searching for Ladybugs until we reach the Prince Trail, where the shorter hike ascends to the East Ridge Trail. The longer hike will proceed along Stream Trail to ascend on Eucalyptus and Phillips Loop Trails to East Ridge Trail.

Both hikes will return via East Ridge, and Redwood Trails to Valle Vista Staging Area.
