Aggie's Birthday Hike!

Come celebrate Aggie's birthday. This is one of her favorite hikes.  It has 6 miles of ponds, forest, mud, squirrels, and cows. Free birthday biscuits (even corn-free, Maribel)!

PLEASE NOTE: The turn off from Alhambra Valley Rd onto Briones Rd is hard to find. It is very close to where Alhambra Valley Rd meets Reliez Valley Rd (250 feet). Briones Rd is a very tiny, uphill, curvy road that passes some nice residences. There's a sign that says 'Not a Through Street'.  Follow that road to the top. Drive SLOWLY...blind curves!

Hike rating:  Moderate

Hiking pace:  Semi-fast

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

Responsibility: Each person will be responsible for him/herself - We will wait a reasonable length of time at junctions, however, for the fast or slow...it is recommended that you obtain a map at the beginning of the hike in case the group is separated.

    This was a great hike. Aggie had a wonderful time and we thank you all for joining to wish her a happy Birthday. I think she ate one too many birthday biscuits though.
