Plan is to meet at La Llorna Park and walk north towards Alameda Arroyo (aka Triviz Path Extension).
Please bring plenty of water, snack, appropriate footwear, dress appropriately, etc.
DISTANCE is no less than 3 mi.
ELEVATION GAIN is negligible.
FEES: None. Of course, if you carpool, please compensate your driver for gas!
DURATION: Finish by late morning/early afternoon.
PET FRIENDLY? Yes. Bring a muzzle (you shouldn't need be told to bring a proper leash), and if you'd like to unleash, ask others before you do so. Warning: the volcanic rock is very, very rough on your pets feet.
SKILL LEVEL is unbelievably beginner friendly.
TERRAIN is well-maintained gravel trail.
WEATHER is 66 degrees and sunny.
AFTERWARDS is TBA.
