6/15 Dirt Dog Run @ 6:30PM

2.  Greetings

Monday evening at 6:30 the Dirt Dog Trail Runners will be running a 7 mile loop course from Castle Rock Park in Walnut Creek.  There will also be a 5 mile loop option.  Doug will be out early marking the course and Linda will be at the start to greet and sweep.  Dogs are not allowed on the long course.

The course:  We will start at the parking lot at the end of Castle Rock Road and run on the single track trail that skirts the playing fields of the park.  Upon leaving the park we will turn right on the fire road and make left turns at all fire road junctions.  The short course will take the Little Yosemite single track trail from the Mt Diablo - Briones trail to Pine Canyon.  The long course drops into Pine Canyon from above Macedo Ranch.  Both courses have a nice downgrade stretch in Pine Canyon and finish on the single track trail we started on.

Driving Directions:  From the 680/24 interchange take Ygnacio Valley Road towards Concord.  Go past John Muir Hospital and turn right on Walnut Ave.  Follow Walnut Ave to the traffic circle and turn right on Castle Rock Road.  Go past Northgate High School to the end of the road and park.

We look forward to your joining our run.

Doug and Linda
