Contra Costa County
Hikers: Cathy, Laura
Distance: 6.2 miles
Adding this one to our favorites list!
All wildlife seen was on the drive in and on the drive out!
They even have cool outhouses!
It was a chilly start.
Could this be the eye of an elephant?
Looks like an elephant's trunk.
Los Vaqueros Reservoir
An outhouse on the trail; this was one of two! They were somewhat close in proximity and about two - thirds into our hike.
This section where we had our lunch had our adrenaline rushing..
A sheer drop.
Coyote - Stone Corral - Volvon Loop - Volvan - Prairie Falcon - Condor
Morgan Territory Regional Preserve
(Edit: To reach the parking lot I would recommend accessing Morgan Territory Road via the Livermore side rather than from Clayton. MTR in Clayton turns into a one-lane road. We were lucky enough to get an early start and only came across one other car from the opposite direction and had just passed a turnout in the road and only had to backup a short distance to the turnout to allow the other car to pass. Livermore side also is a one lane road, but for a shorter distance and has a bit more room.)
