NEXT HIKE:    To Be Determined

Hiking.  Monthly hikes are enjoyed in East Bay Regional and State Parks, unique urban settings (such as steps of Oakland and Berkeley) and other great Bay Area rural areas and parks (such as Angel Island).  Hikes are generally moderate, between 3-6 miles, and take 2.5 – 4 hours.  Hikes may include lunch.  We meet at the Sycamore or Rudgear Park & Ride for carpooling.  Your hiking suggestions are welcome!

Recommended gear for all hikes:
    • hiking shoes with good traction – please check to make sure the soles aren’t too worn down
    • layered clothing to adjust to the weather
    • Socks and long pants for rural areas since ticks and poison oak are all over the East Bay
    • hiking poles, if you have them
    • hat
    • sunscreen
    • water or other hydrating beverage
    • snack
