Event Notes:

Please set your clocks back saturday PM. Daylight savings is over. This is a strenuous hike because of the elevation gain, 2,000+ feet. We will climb to the Comm tower not once but twice. The second time is tough because we will be getting tired. We will pause before that to rest and snack. This is a loop hike. Mostly sun. If you have an EBMUD hiking permit, please bring it (not required). I have modified the hike so that it is almost 7 miles. Hiking poles helpful. Ignore the Trail Notes.

Trail Notes:

This is only a 4 mile hike, but there is 1,000 feet of elevation gain in the first mile. It is not easy. We will take the paved trail around the Comm. tower and take the Rocky Ridge trail to the junction with the trail to Devils Hole. It is an out and back. The trail is doable in this rainy season. Several of us previewd the hike last sunday, one day after it rained. If you have an EBMUD hiking permit, bring it with you.
