We will be hiking at two locations.  The first is at the Fernandez Ranch, where we will be hiking up the BART trail along Windmill Trail and Woodrat Trail.  The return back to the parking lot will take other trails so that we can explore the area.  This hike is about 4 mi with moderate elevation and we should be done by 1pm.

Next we drive to the second hike location at Point Pinole Regional Park.  This park is quite flat and the hike distance is about 4 mi walking around the point.  We should have nice views of the bay.  This area was formerly occupied by munitions and explosive factories and some of the blast sites can be seen.
