***NO PARKING ZONE and Driving Direction: see below FYI***

This is a hike for both groups: Introduction group will have mixture of flat and hills trails to see the difference between walking and hiking; and a great workout with roller coaster hills for fit intermediate hikers. We'll catch the beautiful sunset! This is a dog friendly trail...

Duration: 1.5 to 2 hours for about 5 miles

Suggestions:
1) Everybody should have good tracking shoes or traction running shoes
2) loose clothes- shorts would be fine since its warm out there
3) Plenty of water

Route: Intermediate group will take Eucalyptus trail and be on the ridge trail with roller coaster hills to the top and descent down Red Hill to the rest table. From here, options of flat trail all the way back or hills trail to the trailhead depend on the group. The Introduction group or Occasional Hikers: will have mixture of flat and hills trails. This is for those who are new to hiking, but active on other forms of exercise, be able to walk on flat surface 2.5-3mph for about 1.5-2 hours, distance 4-5 miles
