6.4 miles Briones Regional Park, Briones Rd staging area

Hike rating: Moderate

Hiking pace: semi fast

This hike will leave PROMPTLY at the start time. The staging area is at the top of a very small curvy road that takes time to drive up so leave extra time to get there.

Efforts will be made to keep the group together, however I suggest you obtain a map at the beginning of the hike in case the group is separated.

This hike has hills, a pond near the beginning and end, mostly sunny, ground squirrels, bikes, maybe horses and most likely cows.
