Event Notes:

This is a 6 mile hike from the Briones Overlook to the boat launch area on San Pablo Reservoir. It is mostly shaded. Shaded picnic tables with a view of the lake at the boat launch. We will snack here. Bring your EBMUD permits if you have one. Potty at the Overlook. This is a relatively easy hike. Elevation gain is about 600 feet. Dogs not allowed, geocaching is.
