Subject:           Weekend Eastbay Hikes - Oakland and Clayton
From:               John Bondon
Last Sunday, members Andrew and Howard led a hike to Borges Ranch in Walnut Creek. Andrew reports: "The weather was FANTASTIC! We saw coyotes, deer, snakes and horses in Halloween costume. It was a great day."

This weekend we have not one, but two, great hikes to offer to you. On Saturday, join Jennifer for a hike at the Redwood Regional Park in the Oakland Hills. Want a preview? "The featured hike climbs easily to about 1385 feet, drops to about 780 feet, then regains the lost elevation on the way back to the trailhead -- total elevation change is about 700 feet. The ascending/descending trails are moderate-steep, but short."

Then on Sunday another great Andrew/Howard lead hike at Round Valley Regional Preserve out Marsh Creek Road in Clayton. Andrew notes, "Location is Round Valley Preserve, located southeast of Clayton. We will be doing an easy, out & back hike of 6 miles on the Miwok Trail (75% sun). Start time is 10:30."

You'll find more details about these upcoming hikes posted on the East Bay Casual Hiking website. RAIN CANCELS.

Happy Trails! :)

Happy Trails,
