Shell Ridge in Walnut Creek - hike and yoga

This is a new route for the hike, so wait for more updates on the meeting place. Shell Ridge offers beautiful views of open space and plenty of sunshine. 

We will do about 3 miles of an easy hike followed by a 1 hour long yoga practice.

The trailhead is at the dead end on Marshal Drive, Walnut Creek 94598. Parking is anywhere along Marshal Drive.  It will be crowded because of holiday hikers.

We hike on Upper Ridge Trail, along the ridge with beautiful vistas, descend down to Ginger Gap trail, to Briones Mt. Diablo trail.  We then take a left at the Indian Creek trail.  It's windy, shady narrow trail that follows what would be a creek if it rained.  Then we look upwards for an inviting spot to do yoga. 



Participants will be asked to contribute $1 each towards the $144 per year fee imposed by meetup.com for hosting this site. What to bring: water, yoga mat, jacket. Prepare to carry your yoga mat with you on the trail. 

Rain or cold weather (below 60 degrees) cancels. See you on the trail!

    I scouted out the trail today. Beautiful vistas, and opportunities to find hidden sanctuaries for stillness.
