Midweek After work Sunset hikes now forming in Alamo - 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 !
HIKERS PLEASE NOTE - THIS HIKE IS RATED MODERATE : Depending on the groups pace for this hike , it is not especially difficult , but could be considered somewhat challenging if a fast pace is kept up . The group as a whole sets the speed of the hike -we do wait for the group to catch up at trail intersections - if all attendees want to walk fast then we walk the speed of the group as a whole group effort .
TO FINISH THIS HIKE IN THE DISCRIBED TIME ALLOWED ( by dark ) IT IS NOT OUR INTENTION TO HIKE / WALK THE PACE OF THE SLOWEST HIKER . PLEASE understand your physical hiking ability and hike within your means !
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 !
