Here at Transit & Trails, we really like going outside. A lot. We also really like cool ideas and different ways of going outside. Here’s one that sounds like a great way to travel the East Bay: the East Bay Hills Thru-Hike & Ride.
This cool event is brought to you by the good folks at the Bay Area Ridge Trail.
Please note! You can take BART to the Thru-Hike! Yes, this is a bona fide example of Transit & Trails in action. We dig that.

Do you want to take a group on a hike?
Do you dream of going into nature but don’t know how to plan for it? Perhaps you work with kids. Maybe you work with seniors. Possibly you are part of a club, church, synagogue, temple, or some other community. If you’re in Contra Costa County and you want to take groups outdoors, then we have a workshop for you.
Join us on May 19 from 10:30-12:30 at the Concord Library (2900 Salvio Street, Concord). In partnership with the Contra Costa County Spare the Air Resource Team, Transit and Trails will lead this workshop that provides tools, tips and tricks for planning a hike or a camping trip. Come learn from someone who has taken an uncountable amount of groups onto public transit and into the outdoors. See how we can all go camping without a car. Walk away with knowledge you can use now.
PLUS! There is funding available! Must be present to learn more. This workshop is free and it’s for sure going to be fun.
