Event description

Description

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.

TOTAL DISTANCE
This is a moderate hike of four miles with a few hundred feet elevation change.

LEADERS
Ken Lavin and Liz Watson

WEATHER POLICY
Rain cancels.

COST
Free; RSVP required.

WHERE TO MEET
We’ll assemble at the Overlook Trail Staging Area in Orinda.

NOTES
Bring water, snacks, dress in layers, and wear good hiking shoes. Bring poles if you normally use them. This is a one-way hike with a short car shuttle. Questions? Contact Ken Lavin at klavin@greenbelt.org or 415-543-6771 x321
