    Had a great time at Sunol learned some flower names and geology and a new shady path/detour to Little Yosemite. Thank you!

    Hello Hikers,
    I hope that you have pre-registered with the Greenbelt Alliance, as I just checked their event page and it is listed as "sold out". If you have, please look for each other to "meet-up". I will be there to meet and greet you, but as a volunteer with the Alameda Creek Alliance, I will be participating in the "Bioblitz" taking place at the same location. You will have lots of good guidance on the Greenbelt hike, but if you didn't preregister, you can join the Bioblitz hike of a similar nature by signing up at http://www.alamedacreek.org/join-volunteer/BioBlitz.php. Note that their first hike will be a birding hike out of Sunol at 8:00 am. The second one is at 10:15, the 3rd one near Pleasanton at 11:30.
    Cheers, Ann Brown

    The rating is 4MA which means it is a 4 mile hike of moderate difficulting and an elevation gain of less than 1000 feet. I found this out by clicking on the link posted in the discription. Hope to see you there.
    I think moderate might be a bit difficult for me but we will see.

    Goodmorning! I signed up for this hike thinking there would be more detail about where we are hiking to, mileage, terrain etc added. Am I missing something?
