Event Notes:

This will be a 5-mile, 800 foot elevation gain loop hike with a rest/snack stop at Borges Ranch. The route will avoid the recently burned over area, if possible, but will give us a chance to survey the damage to one of our favorite parks. Water, restroom and covered picnic tsables at Borges. Dog friendly, off-leash OK on trails.
