Event Notes:

This is a 6 mile hike through rolling hills and grasslands, mostly in Shell Ridge. About 800 feet of elevation. No services. We take the Hazard tr to Franco Ranch Loop to Sugarloaf-Shell Ridge to Bullfrog Pond. Left on Twin Ponds Loop and we take it all the way to Twin Ponds. Continue on to the junction with Foothills tr which we take all the way back to Livorna. We will stop to snack around Twin Ponds. Cool to start but it will warm up. If we need to use restrooms at Borges, it will add one mile to the hike. But it's a great place to snack.
