Twin Ponds Loop hike First, Andrew reports of Thursday's weekday hike:
    " We could not get to Redwood Regional Park today because Skyline Blvd is closed for construction just past the Huckleberry Regional Preserve. So we had to hike from Huckleberry. I want to apologize to all the folks that wanted to attend but couldn't.

    We had 4 hikers today. 2 hikers found us. We hiked 5+ miles total, through Huckleberry and into Redwood. It is so beautiful. We will do it again.
And yes, there will be another weekday hike next Thursday. This time in Walnut Creek. Check the website for details. Andrew also filed this report regarding last Sunday's trek to the Lafayette Reservoir from Moraga Road:
    " There were 27 hikers plus dogs for the Upper Rim trail.There were 5 hikers and a very energetic dog for the Lower trail. This is the third week in a row we have had 30+ hikers. It was a beautiful day for hiking and everybody finished. The cookies and grapes from Suzanne and Lucy were delicious. "
Moraga to Lafayette Reservoir hike I snapped some pictures from last Sunday's hike, but haven't had time to get them downloaded from my camera and uploaded to the website. I will let you know once they are available for viewing. In the meantime, please enjoy some of the pictures that were shared with me by members Peggi and Mars. Special thanks to both!

Mark your calendars for Sunday, October 26th for the Wall Point hike. Thanks to the initiative of members Andrew and Lucy, a new EBCHG tradition is brewing. A pot-luck of sorts after the hike, so bring your favorite dish or snack to share and prepare to stick around for some eating and chatting afterwards!

A Preview of our upcoming hikes, by the hike leader(s):

Moraga to Lafayette Reservoir hike Moraga to Lafayette Reservoir hike John says of the upcoming Lime Ridge Open Space (north and south) hike on Sunday, October 12 at 9:15 AM: "Exact route still not set, but plan for an easy 3-4 mile hike. I have limited time Sunday AM so plan to be finished by 12 Noon. thus the reason for a shorter hike for me this weekend. ".

Andrew says of the upcoming Marshall Dr/ Indian Valley School Staging Area to Borges Ranch hike on Thursday, October 16 at 10:00 AM: "Autumn is my favorite time of year. Come out and enjoy the still warm Caifornia sun. You won't see any autumn leaves, but we might catch a little color.".

Andrew says of the upcoming MORGAN TERRITORY HIKE (FINLEY RD. ENTRANCE) hike on Sunday, October 19 at 9:30 AM: "If you want to tone those legs and hips, this hike is for you. You will work hard.".

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! :)
