Castle Rock - Mt Diablo Foothills Hike & Potluck

  • Mar 22, 2014 · 10:45 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

The Plan:

This will be about a 6+ mile hike, incorporating our typical vino/snack break, potluck lunch, random craziness, and whatever else we encounter along the way.  As you can see from the pics, this is a beautiful hike.  If you were on this one in Dec, this will be a different route.

Optional:  go out for a meal/drink after the hike.

I'm rating this one easy to moderate, (depending on your condition).

What To Bring:

Vino! (and cups)

Good Hiking Boots/shoes

Layered clothing, hat, sunscreen

At least 1 liter of water

Vino/snacks for our pre-lunch break during the hike

Food, food, and more food (dried fruit/nuts/seeds, chips, dips, salsa, cheese/crackers, wraps, cut up sandwiches,  deserts - be creative!)

Vino to share at lunch (and paper cups)

Anything else you want to drink (iced tea, beer, etc.)

$5 activity fee

 Your sense of humour is required!
