This will be an exploratory hike; I haven't been to Shell Ridge before. There are supposed to be some fossil beds there, but I'm not sure if we'll see them. But we'll be bound to have a nice time . And we'll get out on a weekday.
We'll hike about six miles, with about 1,200 feet of climbing. We'll hike at a moderate pace; no one left behind but probably a bit faster than our usual pace (but still not jock pace). You can see the route here: ridewithgps.com/routes/[masked]
No charge for this hike.
I'll likely be biking from Walnut Creek BART (about three miles). If you'd like to meet me there, we can ride over together. Leave a message in your RSVP if you want to ride, or if you need a ride/can offer a ride from Walnut Creek BART.
