Subject: 3 weekend hikes - 1 more weekday hike
From: John Bondon
This week we have more hikes to choose from than I ever remember for a single week. 3 hikes to choose from this weekend, plus one more weekday hiking opportunity next Thursday. But first, a report from Andrew regarding last weekend's Twin Ponds Loop hike:
Andrew reports of his Wednesday hike:
Evan says of the upcoming Iron Horse Trail - Alamo to Danville (Paved) hike on Saturday, October 4 at 11:00 AM: "Autumn is here and the weather forecast says it might rain this Saturday. So let's celebrate the change of season with an umbrella walk to Danville Farmers Market! Starting time will be 11:00 AM and round trip mileage is 5.5 miles. When we get to the farmers market (2.75 miles), we'll stop for some food and eat in the picnic area by the trail across the street. The Iron Horse Trail is all pavement and completely flat so all you need to bring is your umbrella, water, and something to carry fruits and vegetables with. We should be back around 2 pm. There are restrooms at the farmers' market in Danville and at the Safeway in Alamo. This is not a dog friendly hike.".
Andrew says of the upcoming Moraga Rd to Lower Rim hike on Sunday, October 5 at 9:00 AM: "This is a fun hike. Bring your kids and your dogs (leashed).".
Iqbal says of the upcoming Lafayette Reservoir Rim Trail (Via Granada) hike on Sunday, October 5 at 9:00 AM: "The Lafayette Reservoir is situated in the Lamorinda area. There are two main trails the bottom paved trail and the unpaved upper rim trail. We will be doing the rim trail. The rim trial offers great views of the reservoir and the surrounding hills, has some shady areas but is mostly in the sun. I would call it moderately difficult hike, but has quite a few steep up and down hill areas. There are toilets and drinking water in a couple of places. It should take us close to 2 1/2 hours.".
Andrew says of the upcoming Redwood Regional Park (Skyline Gate) hike on Thursday, October 9 at 10:00 AM: "This is a very casual hike in beautiful surroundings.".
You'll find more details about each of these upcoming hikes, including starting time and directions to the trailhead, posted on the East Bay Casual Hiking website. In the event of rain, please check with the hike leader as to whether the hike will proceed as planned.
Happy Trails! :)
