GPS: 33.17375, -117.28130
Meet at Trail Head along Sky Haven Lane, (NOT by the dam).
Join us for a hike around the eastern Calavera trails by way of Oak Riparian Park woods trail, then the creek boardwalk, then south into the grasslands. We will skip the Volcano area. The hike trails are easy to moderate with some minor hills. Length is around 4.5 miles in 2 hours. A shorter walk is doable to take a cut-off back to cars. That would be a 2.0 mile walk with the boardwalk trail.
Wear shoes that can get dusty, dress for weather, and hat. Dogs on leash are OK.
Directions: 1) Exit Hwy 78 onto Emerald Dr. southbound. In ~1/4 mi turn right, south, onto Sky Haven Lane. Follow southwards, crossing Lake Blvd, to the end where trailhead parking is along the street.
2) From College Blvd, ~1/4 mi south of Hwy 78, take Lake Blvd eastwards. Go 0.8 mi east on Lake Blvd to stop light of Sky Haven lane and right, south, to the end where trailhead parking is along the street.
3) From South Melrose turn onto Cannon Rd westbound, then right onto Lake Blvd. Follow it 1.6 miles to Sky Haven stop light, then left, south, and follow to end.
