Hike at Los Vaqueros Reservoir

  • Mar 23, 2014 · 11:30 AM

Hi all,
This will be a about 8 mile moderate hike at this beautiful place.

Hike Highlights:Rolling grasslands, reservoir, views and fun people.

Bring enough water, lunch and something to share if u like [remember the old saying, tastier snacks get you more friends ;)]We'll have a late lunch/nap at a picnic area on top of a hill with views of the reservoir.

We'll meet at the Los Vaqueros Marina area at 11:30AM.

From East bay, take 580 East towards Livermore
Exit at North Vasco Road.
Take North Vasco Road.
Drive about 4.4 miles to the sign to 'Los Vaqueros Watershed' pointing to left.
Take a left and drive all the way to the Marina parking lot [end of the road].

I think there is about $6 fee, which you can save by carpooling.

The above is just to give you an idea of where it is. Use GPS co-ordinates and google maps to find your directions in advance so you don't get lost :)

    Would love to join but I would also love to carpool.(I'm an avid environmentalist.) I'm in Oakland near 19th St. BART. Haven't heard back yet from Shiela. Is anyone interested? If so, please call me at[masked]-7781. Thanks.

    Hey RZ and Afsaneh,

    I can pick you both up at 19th St. BART if you're willing to share gas. Looks like an hour should do it as that's what Google Maps says right now what it takes Thursday at 3:22. What say you? Full disclosure. Old Acura. Dealer guy said seat belts pass their jerk test but seem a little loose to me. But I'm a good driver so let me know if you want to go.
