Midweek Sunset Hike @ Lime Ridge 5+ mile Loop Hike - Rated Moderate

            A 6:30 pm. start time at 3800 Valley Vista Rd. A 5 + mile loop hike Rated Moderate difficulty with several somewhat long sections of up and down hill along wide fire trails and some single track dirt trails.

             The Organizers have this hike Rated Moderate difficulty however is one of our favorite loops and among the easier of the hikes we regularly complete. If your up to the challenge and want to get a great workout , maybe see a great sunset before we finish. Along with other passionate outdoor enthusiasts give,this one a try !

         The view from the ridge is something to see, overall views of the Clayton ,Concord and Walnut Creek neighborhoods and surrounding communities, with the sun setting on the hill's a great photo opportunity.

         Also recommended to bring are Sturdy comfortable footwear and enough water for a 2 + hour hike , and a flashlight in case we finish after dark . some of our regular hikers enjoy the use of hiking poles, and don't forget the camera.

  NOTE  :  * NOT A DOG HIKE AREA * Lime Ridge open space is an animal protected environmental area and therefore are NOT allowing DOGS in this hiking area.   SORRY!

      Friendly reminder also :   Remember to update your RSVP if you think there's a chance you wont be able to make this hike, so your other friends in the group can grab the spot.

        Hope you can make this one, we'll look for you on the trail !

    Fantastic hike! Of all the sunset hikes I've been on so far, this was my favorite, for sure! One ridge in particular had the most spectacular panoramic, 360 views of the valleys, cities, and Delta I've ever seen in the Lime Ridge area. When we got to the top, the sun was setting. Seeing that, along with the views, was a beautiful and awesome experience! I so look forward to these hikes every Wednesday, and it's always a new adventure each time. I feel so fortunate to be a part of this wonderful group, and to enjoy all the different hikes with such nice, friendly, and really cool people! Thank you to Chris and Kirk for organizing and leading another great hike!

      Agreed that it is great to know people are watching out for each other. I only wish to say I had not fallen behind, I had doubled back after finishing the hike to go back and meet the group. A good lesson learned, as the remaining group took a different trail. Not an issue - except that it was getting dark. So - a basic rule of hiking that I am reminded - don't make assumptions! Confirm with others where they are before attempting to meet.

    Very fun nice people. I laughed a lot, It was interesting that many people were using poles. The ice ax was a surprise though.

    Hi - anyone up for car pooling from Danville and want to meet at Sycamore Park and Ride? Otherwise, I am not sure I can face the drive in traffic without using the HOV lane! Let me know :)
