Midweek Sunset Hike In The Hills Above Alamo - 5 + mile Loop - Rated Moderate

       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 !

    Pleasant sunset hike on a warm evening! We took a little different route this time, and it was an interesting change, resulting in another great hiking experience! Enjoyed sharing the trail with a wonderful group of people, who really know how to laugh and have a great time! Tons of laughs and good conversations were a nice addition to this very fun hike! Chris, thank you for your patience and making sure we all found our way back safely. As always, we appreciate it!

    Going to try a little different route this week ( up Hemme Av. and back down Camille - about the same physical difficulty - and just a tad shorter ,we will have no trouble finishing by Dark ) . We will adjust these hikes to work within the Daylight that is available . Only a couple more weeks at this ( Hap Magee ) location .

    Chris:
    is it dark by the time you get back to the parking lot? Should we bring flashlights?

      Good point - Never hurts to be Prepared for the ever increasing shorter days . And yes we have been known to get back to the parking lot after dark ....
