Monday evening at 6:30 the Dirt Dog Trail Runners will be running a 6 mile loop course on Shell Ridge from the East end of Livorna Road in Alamo. There will also be a 4 mile option. Doug will be out early marking the course and Chris will be at the start to greet and sweep.
The course: We will start across the street from the paring lot and follow the Alamo Trail to the Mount Diablo-Briones Trail. The short course will turn left and follow the Mount Diablo-Briones Trail until it joins the long course where it comes out of Pine Canyon. The long course will turn right and follow the Mount Diablo-Briones trail making a left turn on the Little Yosemite Trail. Take the Little Yosemite Trail to its end and turn left on the Stagecoach Trail. Just before Castle Rock Park turn right and exit Pine Canyon with a series of right turns on fireroads. After joining up with the short course take a right turn and go around the water tower following the Foothill Trail back to the parking lot.
Driving Directions: From the 680/24 interchange take 680 South towards Dublin. Exit at Livorna Road and turn right at the bottom of the ramp. Follow Livorna Road East to its end and park in the parking lot on your left.
We look forward to your joining our run.
Doug and Chris
