Join me this coming Monday (MLK Holiday) for part or all of a hike from 
Dimond Park, up and around Joaquin Miller Park, and back - approx 9 miles.

When: Monday, Jan 16, 9am - 1pm
Where: Meet at the BASKETBALL COURT near the swimming pool in Dimond 
Park - the group will leave promptly at 9:05am
What: a round-trip hike through Dimond Canyon and Joaquin Miller Park - 
flowing streams, redwoods, oaks, ferns, wildlife, etc

Not up for the full hike? It's easy to do shorter versions. Examples 

1) bring a friend, join the group up to Monterey Blvd, then turn around 
and backtrack to Dimond Park (approx 3.2 miles)
2) hike to the top of Joaquin Miller Park, arrange a pick-up from a 
friend (approx 4.5 miles)
3) meet us at the top and hike DOWN to Dimond Park (approx 4.5 miles)

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY (a Dimond Improvement Association, Friends of 
Sausal Creek, and Oakland Public Works partnership):

On Saturday, I'll lead a trail maintenance project on the Bridgeview 
switchbacks that connect the Dimond Canyon Trail to the Bridgeview 
Trail. Activities will include improving the trail (w/ grub axe, 
shovels, sledge hammers and rakes) , trimming brush, and cutting ivy off 
of trees. Bring gloves and tools for the activity you're comfortable in 
helping with (we'll have some extra tools, but not many).

When: Saturday, Jan 14, 12:30pm-3:30pm
Where: Meet at the end of Bridgeview Dr (off Leimert) at the trailhead; 
we'll hike in 1/4 mile together, or meet us there for part of the time.
What: Improve the Bridgeview switchbacks

Please RSVP and/or ask questions directly to: stankdodson at yahoo.com

See you on the trails!
