Subject:           Thursday and Saturday hikes this week - HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
From:               John Bondon
Since there is a hike to tell you about tomorrow, I won't waste time trying to put together details from last week's hikes. We'll save that for next week's email. Info about Evan's upcoming hikes this week follows. Have a Happy Holiday, everyone! See you all Next Year!

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

Evan says of the upcoming Iron Horse Trail - Alamo to Danville (Paved) hike on Thursday, December 25 at 12:00 PM: "Who says you can't go hiking over the holidays? Spend a few hours with new friends and old on a fun hike on the flat paved portion of the Iron Horse Trail in Danville.

Roundtrip will be 5.5 miles. We'll stop halfway in Danville and have coffee at Starbucks. This is a wonderful time of the year to be on the trail. Hope to see you there! Note: This is not a dog friendly hike.

Evan says of the upcoming Deer Flat from Mitchell Canyon (Mt. Diablo SP) hike on Saturday, December 27 at 12:15 PM: "This 7 mile round trip hike has it all. A roaring creek that's been filled up with all the rain we've been getting. Crisp air with all the smells of winter - the refreshing scents of wet trees, lichen and branches. Spectacular views of Eagle Peak. Plus the good company of old friends and new. What more could you ask for? Come join us for an afternoon of fun and hiking! Note: Mt. Diablo is a state park so dogs are not permitted.".

As always, 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! :)

Happy Trails,
