Join Cammie and me for some off leash hiking followed by a potluck picnic in scenic Redwood Park. Feel free to join for the hike, the picnic, or both!Hike:
We will hike about three miles at a moderate pace on wide dirt trails. The route does have some ups and downs including a 1/4 mile ascent, but nothing too extreme. Feel free to stop and take breaks along the way and bring water for you and your pooch. We will start hiking promptly, so please arrive on time. It should take about 1 1/2 hours to complete the loop.Picnic:
Following the hike (at about 4pm), we will gather with the dogs at Redwood Bowl for a nice potluck picnic. The dogs can play or rest while we eat and chat. Finger foods tend to be easiest. The cars are near Redwood Bowl, so those interested in hiking and the picnic can stop back at the cars to grab their food. Restrooms and a water fountain (with a bowl for the dogs) are available.Please indicate in your RSVP which parts of the event you would like to attend and what you would like to bring for the potluck.Meeting Spot:
Meet at the back of the Redwood Bowl Staging Area parking lot in Redwood Regional Park. If you are joining for the picnic only, feel free to scope out a picnic table at Redwood Bowl. Follow the trail at the back of the parking lot to Redwood Bowl.
Directions: Get yourself on Highway 13. In Oakland on Highway 13, take the Redwood Road exit and go east (uphill). At the top of the hill, turn left onto Skyline Blvd. Turn right at the first traffic signal to remain on Skyline Boulevard (otherwise the roadway becomes Joaquin Miller Road and you will proceed downhill). The Redwood Bowl Staging Area parking lot is about a mile up the road on the right hand side, just before the entrance to Chabot Space & Science Center (this is the address listed above).
All friendly goldens are welcome! While dogs are allowed to be off leash if under voice control, owners must carry a leash at all times and are responsible for cleaning up after their dog. Should be a fun filled afternoon. Hope to see you there!
*If more than 12 people sign up for the hike, we will likely split into two groups and head out in opposite directions out of respect for the trails and others on the trails.
