Enjoy the view in the Diablo foot hills at Shell Ridge open space in Walnut Creek. This will be a 3.75 mile hike with rolling hills, mostly on fire road trails. We will have a picnic lunch after the hike. Please bring a main dish for yourself and maybe a little something to share with the group if you like. We will have the picnic back at the trailhead, so you will not need to carry any of your food items.This is a moderate to easy hike.Carpooling is recommended as the parking lot is very small and there is a good chance if we don't car pool there will not be enough spots!
