HIKE #19: Sobrante Ridge Regional Park, El Sobrante (13-May-2005)

THE START OF today’s hike felt different, as we are now traveling mostly east, rather than north, to begin our hikes. And we are actually hike SOUTH! This rather short hike would be a lovely get-away hike for local residents, but we didn’t feel it was particularly spectacular. Perhaps the gray clouds and impending rain had something to do with that! Nonetheless, it felt like an important connector, as we are nearing Mt. Diablo and the long ridges of the East Bay.
