Second Annual Trail Challenge Set


    Following last year’s successful event, Lafayette, Moraga and Orinda Parks and Rec directors look forward to seeing even more local residents discover the plethora of trails in the area during the Second Annual Lamorinda Trail Challenge.
    The free, self-guided program allows participants to complete the challenge by one of two ways: Go the Distance or Complete the Objectives.
    Go the Distance participants track the distance they hike on Lamorinda trails and submit a log showing a completed total of 26.2 miles. Those choosing the objective approach must complete five of eight objectives listed in the guide. Objectives include identifying native wildflowers, pitching in to clean up trash along trails, hiking to a creek or just having a picnic.
    A kick-off party is currently planned for 11 a.m. May 2 at Orinda Library Plaza, 26 Orinda Way. Ian Baird, president of the Orinda Hiking Club, is scheduled to discuss the benefits of regular nature hikes.
    Maps and guidebooks will be available at the kick-off party. If, due to COVID-19 restrictions, the kick-off party is canceled, participants can download the maps and guidebooks at, or
