Event Notes:

About a 6 mile hike with moderate elevation gain. Nothing steep.You are in the back country on this hike. It is a loop and there is lots of sun. No services. Please be prepared. Only me leading so please stay close by. We do enter Mt Diablo, so it is not dog friendly. I have never seen a Ranger here. We park by the side of the road. You will see my red Civic Hatchback.
