Briones Loop - approximately 5 miles

 

Hike rating: Moderate

Flat, downhill and one big hill half way through followed by a few more steep ones and some gradual slopes.

There will probably be many cows along the way...

Hiking pace: relaxed

Bring water for you and your dog.

To get to the meeting place there is a very narrow winding road.

We will wait 5 minutes after the posted start for latecomers.

 

Efforts will be made to keep the group together but each person will be responsible for himself - if you are unable to keep up with the group pace, the organizer may not be on the lookout for you. It is recommended that you obtain a map at the beginning of the hike in case the group is separated.
