Annual Picnic and Trail Excursion at Point Pinole, Sunday, August 7
picnic rideJoin EBATC for a guided hike, bike ride or horse- back ride, followed by a BBQ lunch and gathering. This is an opportunity for trail users of all stripes to get together and celebrate the beautiful open spaces of the East Bay, and get to know each other better, a chance to celebrate what we all have in common: a deep and abiding love of trails, the outdoors, and taking a little trip through the same. Sharing trails is the essence of our message, and actually doing so in a highly cooperative, and fun-loving way can lower barriers faster and more effectively than any other activity.

Meet at the Palms Picnic area just off Point Pinole Road at Point Pinole Regional Shoreline, 5551 N Giant Hwy San Pablo, for a 10:00 AM departure for the hike or ride. We'll be back to picnic at 1:00 PM. Thanks to East Bay Regional Park District for providing the picnic site, for waiving the usual parking fee, and for providing lunch.

Please RSVP to 510- 544-2631 between July 18 and August 4th -- please say how many are coming, number of horse trailers, if any, and leave a call-back number.
