East Bay: Briones Reservoir Ramble
Keep cool with a shady hike on the Bear Creek Trail above Briones Reservoir. As we walk, we’ll share some nature tidbits about the native trees and shrubs we see along the trail and learn the fate of the poor bear for whom the creek is named.
The hills to the west, once threatened with development, were preserved for future generations in one of Greenbelt Alliance’s earliest open space campaign victories. This is a one-way hike with a car shuttle.
We’ll assemble at the Overlook Trail Staging Area in Orinda.
Bring water, snacks, dress in layers and bring hiking poles if you normally use them. Dress in layers and wear good hiking shoes. This is a one-way hike with a short car shuttle. Questions? Contact Ken Lavin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 415-543-6771 x321.
