"Afterglow II" Hike & Picnic

Join us for a simple hike & picnic - celebrate the 2016 season.

October 22, 2016

Help celebrate the successes and fun of the V-O-Cal 2016 season on October 22. Join in for either the hike or the picnic or both.

Based on popular demand we will return to Franklin Canyon. Where there are 6+ miles of beautiful trails to enjoy. If you do not want to walk the full trail, there are several shorter loops or you can just come for the picnic.

When: 10:45 a.m. for the earliest hikers to gather (first hikers start at 11:00 a.m.). 1:00 p.m. for the picnic.
Where: The staging area at Fernandez Ranch. The address of 1081 Christie Road, Martinez, CA, 94533 in your GPS device should take you right there.

Bring: This is a "do it yourself" affair. Everything and anything you need or want to drink (especially water), eat or play, including friends even if they have not yet worked with V-O-Cal

Like last year, we have only one request! If you have a V-O-Cal trail project shirt, hat, bandanna or other swag, please wear it!
