8 am START TIME for this hike --- This hike is our 2nd in the series of EBMUD Permit hikes that we are rolling out for the Discovery Hikers to enjoy. My Hope is that each hiker would consider getting one of these permits so the group can continue to explore new uncharted trails in and around the East Bay Hills . A one year trail Hiking Permit costs just 10 dollars for a year. And wait till you see the trails that we have discovered so far !
