Event Notes:

A moderate hike of about 6 miles from Valle Vista staging area in Moraga. Valle Vista is 7 mils on Moraga Road from Hwy 24. The trail takes us along the beautiful Upper San Leandro Reservoir. We can either go clockwise (climb the hill last) or counter clockwise (climb the hill early). The hike is dog friendly. Porta potty at staging area but no water. Bring your EBMUD hiking permits. Sign in may be required. I can allow up to 3 people on my permit.
