TRANSPORTS Trail Run, Wednesday 4/24/13...6:30 PM

Greetings All,

The run will be out at Briones Overlook Staging Area (NOT Briones PARK!), running the Bear Creek trail along the east side of the Reservoir.  The run is out-and-back and is moderately hilly, relative to many of the trails in the East Bay.  The trail is about 3.5 miles long, which makes for a 7 mile total run if you decide to go the whole distance, but as always you are certainly welcome to turn around whenever you need to.

This is a single track trail that does not allow bikes or dogs.  It's in the EBMUD management lands, so you need a permit.  I have one that covers up to 30 people, so we should be fine.  If you do have your own permit, it would be good to bring it along just to be safe.

There is a restroom at the staging area, but there are no water fountains so be sure to bring something to drink with you.  Running will commence at 6:30 PM sharp.

Please also be aware that there is always the potential for break-ins while we are away from the cars (sadly, we had one last week).  Be midful of where you park and what you leave in plain sight in your car.

    Very nice route Richie, thanks!
    Also to add to the cautions, at least for Spring: check for ticks afterwards. Found a straggler crawling around looking for a place to set up shop - *denied access!*
