Event Notes:

This hike is being offered to us by the East Bay Trail Dogs.
Founded in 1999 the East Bay Trail Dogs are an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that designs, builds, maintains and repairs hiking trails in public lands throughout the East Bay area. Its members are from every walk of life and each shares the common bond of being a hiking trail enthusiast. Concerned about the degraded condition of numerous trails and the lack of hiking trail building in newly acquired public lands, the “Dogs” turned their hiking trail enthusiasm into hiking trail “constructonism” Since 1999 the East Bay Trail dogs worked for 6-six different public agencies in 3-three Bay Area counties, and donated over nine thousand eight hundred (9800) man-hours. They did over one hundred eighty (180) different projects. Using conservative labor cost estimates, East Bay Trail Dogs saved these agencies over $180 thousand dollars. Join us on the Chaparral Spring hike and enjoy their latest trail building project.
