Last week, Las Trampas appeared to be the popular hiking destination for our group. Andrew led not one, but two seperate hikes to this location. Here's his report from the Friday hike:
    We had 13 hikers and 2 big dogs for a 5 mile hike to Las Trampas Peak. Yes, we had fun. The dogs had more fun. We let the dogs off leash. They loved it. All those great smells.
Sunday's hike focused on the eastern portion of Las Trampas. Andrew reports, "We had 27 hikers and 2 doggies for another great hike. The doggies love it, which makes me very happy."

A Preview of some of our upcoming hikes, by the hike leaders:

Andrew says of the upcoming Livorna Rd trailhead to Borges Ranch hike: "Turkey leftovers are now OK for snacking.".

Helene says of the upcoming Mitchell Canyon/Black Point Trail/Olofson Ridge Loop hike: "Join us for a beautiful hike that explores a variety of trails in Mount Diablo State Park -- from Mitchel Canyon to Black Point Trail, down to White Canyon and up again to Olofson Ridge. Co-sponsored by the MDIA. Arrange your own car pools with members of the group. Please be on time.".

Andrew says of the upcoming Lime Ridge (Arbolado Park) hike: "There is a bench at the top of the hill where we can snack and relax. Should have good views.".

bobbi says of the upcoming MOTT PEAK LOOP--Old Briones Road hike: "This is a couple of hours of moderate hiking with the option of another 5 miles of a steeper nearby Lagoon trail for those who would like to get more exercise.".

As always, you'll find more details about each of these upcoming hikes posted on the East Bay Casual Hiking website. Please note: In the event of rain, please check with the hike leader as to whether the hike will proceed as planned.

Happy Trails! :)

Happy Trails,
