Explore the Bay Area Ridge Trail with a 5-day Hike from Crockett to Castro Valley, carrying only your daypack! Enjoy beautiful trails, scenic vistas, great food and wonderful camaraderie.

Details: Hikers will cover ~60 miles, mostly on the Bay Area Ridge Trail, with opportunities for many extra miles. The hike is fully supported, with chef-prepared meals, evening entertainment, and campsites included. We shuttle your gear between campsites, so you hike carrying only a day-pack! You may hike all 5 days, or however many days you would like.

We will offer BART pick up at the start and drop off at the end of the ride.

For pictures from the hike from previous years' hikes, please see the Ridge Trail Council's Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/ridgetrail.

Costs: This event benefits the Bay Area Ridge Trail and other East Bay trail projects. You may hike all 5 days, or however many days you would like. The fee is $250 for all 5 days (or $55 per day for fewer than 5 days) includes camping, all meals, and entertainment. For visitors, dinner in camp will be $15/night.

This 4th annual East Bay Hills Trails Benefit hike is being held in conjunction with the 10th annual East Bay Hills Trails Benefit Horseback Ride. Together, the two events have raised $140,000 for the trails in the last nine years. For more information on the equestrian ride, visit the Tilden Wildcat Horsemen's Association website at http://www.twha.org.

Volunteers: If you cannot hike, join us to volunteer and help with the important tasks that will make this event happen.
