Hash #777

Kennedy Grove Regional Recreation Area - Richmond

When: Sunday, July 24, 2011 - 1:00 PM
Hare(s): Ball Wrinkle
Details: East Bay 3-Way Hash - We will be running through three different East Bay
Park jurisdictions and some private land (I think) There will be some nice
views of the hills of El Sobrante, San Pablo Reservoir, and the hills to
the East. Unlike a Cincinnati 3-way, there will be no chili, cheese, or
spaghetti on trail. Sorry.

Plenty of Parking with a $5/car fee. If you want to save $5 on parking you
may find parking on Hillside Dr. (6502 Hillside Dr, El Sobrante) Which can
be accessed from Castro Ranch Rd. There is a pedestrian entrance at the
South end of Hillside Dr. It's a very short walk to the parking lot. I
don't know what the neighborhood parking rules are. Check for no parking
signs just in case.

The trail is dog friendly (on a leash, and be prepared to cross a few gates
with your pooch. Trail is not stroller-friendly. There are stroller
friendly trails around the edge of the large grassy lawn area.
