Las Trampas from Hap Magee Ranch in Alamo- 5+ mile Loop Hike - Rated Moderate

 The Discovery Hikers have found a little Shade and some challenge with this hike for the group .

   The proposed route is a 5 + mile Half Urban (street - neighborhoods ) and Half wide dirt fire trail and Awesome Valley views - plenty of challenge, even for our regular conditioned Hikers. The path is up through the neighborhoods of the Prestigious west side Alamo hillside and on to the Las Trampas  Regional Park Trails, for about 2 miles on the Madrone Trail and back down through the surface streets to the famous Iron Horse Trail and return to Hap Magee Park for a 5 mile - 2 1/2 hour Moderate difficulty half Urban / half wide fire trail loop !

    This hike is not recommended for beginning hikers, please check our calendar of events for more suitable hikes - and out of respect for the other hikers, please remember to hike with in your own ability.

  This is a DOG Friendly hike and we welcome well behaved dogs on this one .

  Restrooms and drinking water are available at the start of this 2 1/2 hour hike .

        Organizers notes : If you like hiking on Nature trails with awesome Valley Views and seeing some of the most beautiful Homes in the Bay Area Architecture and Front Yard Landscape close up then this might just be your cup of tea !

    Mornings are tough for me but I want to get one more hike in before I start packing for my hiking plant I.D. class in the Ruby Mountains, NV. Is there anyone I can call if I am running late?

    My back is messed up, and I can't do hardly any walking.

    Would love to do this hike, but I work on Saturdays. :( Maybe someday you'll repeat it on a Sunday.
