HIKE RATING: Moderate for people who regularly hike hills
HIKING PACE: Semi-Fast
Expect all events to start on time. If you're late and a leader chooses to wait a few minutes for late arrivals, consider yourself lucky. It's best to arrive 10 minutes early to allow time to exit the car, find the group, get your dogs de-pooped and maybe grab a map.
HIKE ROUTE: We will turn right on the trail, and hike around the hill. We will turn left, and take a steep hill to the top and a steep hill down the other side. There will be somewhat more gentle hills to the end. If the map I am looking at isn't misleading me, it is:
Right Kennedy Creek Trail, merge onto Laurel Loop Trail, left Lower Sea Foam, right Upper Sea Foam, Right Black Oak Loop. We take a loop of Black Oak loop, passing by where we came down on Upper Sea Foam. We will turn right at Kennedy Creek Trail to return to our cars.
DRIVING DIRECTIONS: Patra Drive in El Sobrante ends where we will meet. Please see the map below, and check other maps if needed.
Each person will be responsible for themselves - if you are unable to keep up with the group pace, the leader will not be on the lookout for you. It is recommended that you obtain a map before the hike in case the group is separated.
Please use the Google Maps to familiarize yourself with the trip and explore various route options from your home before to head out.
OTHER: There are not convenient bathrooms. There are many trees to hide behind.
