So for my first "Hikes and Hounds" trip we'll do Lake Chabot in Castro Valley. This is a nice flat, paved, hike around the East side of the Lake. I imagine we will do at least the paved section of the trail (which is around 1.76 miles one way), maybe further if we feel like it. It can get hot so bring water for yourself and your pup! We will meet near the parking lot, either at a table if one is available, or on the grass. I will have a meet up sign visible, and I'll send out my cell to RSVPs. Can also keep an eye out for
Leela our Beagle-Dobermann mix (she kinda stands out as she has one eye :) ). There is a $5 parking fee, and a $2 dog fee at Lake Chabot.
