    3 of us ended up in the same place at the intersection of Bear Creek and Briones at the Bear Creek Staging Area but obviously, the wrong place. Where was the meeting place?

    Sorry to those few who missed the meeting place and start time . Don't worry the hikers that did attend said we should repeat this event on a regular basis. Thanks for all those who came out to help make this yet another successful hike. Check out our photos of the hike and look forward to see you on the next one.

    I'm so sorry to be missing this hike. I wanted to see this area Most of all. I have obligations to friends and volunteering for the holidays that leave me no time for this hike. ENJOY IT!
