Hike Mulholland Dr. - Moraga - Urban Hike 5-Mile loop Rated Moderate Minus

       

        Discovery Hikers are exploring a little different kind of hike this week. We call these Urban hikes and this is how many of us got started before Meetups Hiking Groups were invented.

        Not considered easy be any means but a nice steady climb of about 800 feet and plenty of flat and mellow sections to catch your breath and check out the valley views of Moraga that make this hike a favorite of ours.

  NOTE :  The Organizers have this hike Rated : Moderate Minus , The Moderate part is the climb up an old abandon roadway along the ridge of Mullholland dr. The Minus part is walking on Surface Streets to get there and back . Approx. 80 % on Surface Streets and the balance on Dirt surfaces, single track trails that connect to form a Loop of 5 miles. Allow 2 - 2 1/2 hours round trip

          NOTE :  This hike is among some of the more easier events we do on a regular basis. If you'd like a little more gentle hike on sure footing, and still get your heart rate up then this might just be what you need. Compare this level of difficulty to Lafayette reservoir Lower loop ,maybe 1 1/2 times around .

         The Organizers recommend wearing sturdy comfortable hiking footwear and are reminded to bring with each of you plenty of drinking water for the 2 hour hike.

         If weather is forecast rain then this event could still go as planned if the group decides to hike with umbrellas and doesn't mind wet conditions . Keep an eye on the updated message board to see current hike information.

        Discovery Hikers taking a break from the trails to check out new and sometimes old favorites that remind us of how we all got started , hope you can make this one .

    Nice hike...liked the urban setting as a change from the "nature" trails. The giraffe house was cool! Minette had a blast! Thanks, Chris and Paul!
