The walk is about 3.5 to 5.5 miles, depending on the route, and usually takes no more than an hour and a half. We walk out then back on the same path. The path is mostly paved (there are some spots on the southern side that are just packed dirt).
After the walk we'll meet at Starbucks for coffee at 20663 Rustic Drive in Castro Valley (faces Castro Valley Blvd).
PARKING: $5 to park in the lot or free to park on the street and walk in (it's not very far to walk in from the street to the parking lot attendant).
RESTROOMS: Several locations
