From last Saturday's Mount Diablo WaterFall hike, Andrew filed the following report:
It was a gorgeous day and the falls are AWESOME. Everybody loved it. We started with 31 and 2 turned back early.
We soon split into two groups because a number of hikers had time constraints. I lead the faster group and Paul and Howard led the rest.
It worked out very well.
And of the Sunday paved hike Andrew reported, "We had 23 hikers and one well behaved dog for our hike today.
Started out cloudy and cool but soon got very nice. Several folks left the hike early.
Special thanks to members Howard, Mars, and Barbara, for sharing some of their
pictures from last weekend's WaterFall hike for others like me who missed it to enjoy!
You can view some of the other pictures that weren't included in this email on the website here:
Special thanks to Paul for leading the WaterFall hike. Sorry I wasn't able to make it.
From the pictures, it sure looked beautiful! And after all the rain we received last month a PERFECT time to venture on this trail!
If you missed it last Saturday, you have one more opportunity to check it out this Sunday at 10AM when Andrew leads a slightly modified route.
Andrew says of the upcoming Mt Diablo WaterFall Trail hike
on Sunday, March 15 at 10:00 AM:
"Do it now, or wait until next year. But do it soon.".
MARS also leads a hike this Sunday at 10AM over on the Antioch side of the hill and
says of the upcoming black diamond #2 hike:
"Come out to the east county and join us for a pleasant easy/moderate hike.
Now is a perfect time for hiking Black Diamond with the recent rains the park is abundantly green with many wild flowers showing ( look for poppies along the way). It has been dry this week so mud will not be a problem
Expecting a few clouds over the weekend to keep the heat in check (perfect hiking weather)This is a dog friendly hike....".
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! :)
