Hikers: Cathy, Laura
Distance: 5.72 miles - includes walking from Rancho Laguna Park to the trailhead - about .8 of a mile (each way). There is street parking closer to the trailhead on Camino Pablo @ Sanders Ranch Road.
Elevation gain: 1,453 ft.
A beautiful day filled with lots of fog, cows, cool clouds and hills. Lots of hills.
We're thinking this wouldn't be a good hike after a rain. It was pretty soggy in areas, and we haven't had any rain in over three weeks.
Out of the fog we came. It was an amazing transformation, that just could not be caught on camera.
The view from our snack spot.
St. Mary's College of California
Mt. Diablo in the background.
A gentleman we met on the trail mentioned there was a chair up here, that gets moved from spot to spot.
Mt. D again! :)
You can barely see the rainbow colors in the wispy part of the cloud in the middle. The colors started fading before we could get our cameras out.
Old Moraga Ranch Trail
The trailhead is located in the gated community of Sanders Ranch. Take the sidewalk on the left-hand side of the security kiosk, and look for the trail about five houses down, on the left.
