ACCESSIBILITY: Flat and accessible. Accessible restroom
DESCRIPTION: The East Shore Trail hugs the lake, has gentle undulations, passes through alternating sunny and shady areas - so good for the hot weather and bird watching.
Leisure walkers will walk "out and back" as far along the East Shore Trail as they desire. There are restrooms. Easy to turn around at any point, so great for all skill levels. Depending upon walk leader availability and hiker interest more challenging trails can be discussed.
Where to meet: We will meet at the Marina Cafe deck past the parking lot - there is a $5 fee taken at the Ranger gate, if you turn into the park. You can also park outside the Park on Lake Chabot Road, free of charge. Allow for "walk time" to get to the Marina Cafe.
What to bring: Binoculars if you have them, layered clothing for variable weather, water and snack. Hiking poles if you use them. Hiking poles are always good for stability, even on level ground. Bring your cell phone, if you have one.
How to get there: It is a 25 minute drive to the park from the Rockridge BART parking lot. Take Hwy 13 South and join 580 East. Drive on 580 East about 5 more miles to the Fairmont Drive Exit and turn east on Lake Chabot Road. The entrance is on the left and you can park along Lake Chabot Road at no charge. You may also turn in and drive to the kiosk for the $5 fee. 17936 Lake Chabot Rd. Castro Valley - for the closest navigational setting to the entrance.
Transportation: Members can request a ride through the AV volunteer service program (please give them advanced notice), or members and volunteers may bring a guest who can drive you and join us on the walk. It is a great opportunity to introduce Ashby Village to your friends/neighbors!
Let's enjoy nature! See you on the trail
