Lafayette Reservoir rim hike

  • Jul 14, 2013 · 9:30 AM
  • Lafayette Reservoir

Hello hikers. 

I hope you will join me for the following...

This will be a hike around the Lafayette Reservoir "rim" (upper) trail.  I would consider this an intermediate-to-advanced hike, due the the hills.  (There is a lot of up and down hills.) It is a little over 5 miles around the rim trail, and will probably take around 2 hours (depending how how fast you like to walk).

Because of the distance/time involved, I would advise NOT parking in metered parking, because the meters have a 2 hour max time, and you would probably note make it back in time to avoid getting a ticket.  Instead, I would advise either parking in the daily lot, or on one of the side streets near the reservoir.

This hike is great exercise and has some grate views, and I always really enjoy doing it.  Hope to see you there.

    One of my co-workers lives in Orinda and has hiked this trail several times. She says it is easier going in a counter-clockwise loop! Which way are we going?
