Monday evening at 6:30 the Dirt Dog Trail Runners will be running an out and back course in Redwood Regional Park from the Valle Vista Staging Area of Upper San Leandro Reservoir on Canyon Road south of Moraga. Keith will be out early marking the course and Alex will be at the start to get everyone started. She will also sweep the arrows on her return trip. The full run is a bit over 6 miles but you can turn anywhere along the course.
The Course: From the parking lot take the Redwood Trail. Cross Pinehurst Road where Canyon Road ends. Continue on Redwood Trail up to the ridge and turn left on East Ridge Trail. Follow East Ridge Trail to where it ends at Pinehurst Road which is the turnaround point.
EBMUD Trail Pass Holders: Please bring your pass and sign in for 4 runners. Non pass holders should sign in with the car license number using a trail pass holders pass number. Information about getting a pass can be found at www.ebmud.com/recreation.
Driving Directions: From the 680/24 Interchange take 24 towards Oakland. Exit at the Central Lafayette Exit. Turn right at the bottom of the ramp and continue the right turn going under the freeway. Turn right on Mt Diablo Blvd and immediately get in the left lane. Turn left on Moraga Road. Follow Moraga Road through Moraga where the name of the road changes to Canyon Road. Look for the parking lot on your left about a mile past the Catholic Church.
