East Bay Casual Hikers outing in Briones Regional Park. Starting at the parking lot near the entrance kiosk off Bear Creek rd. we hiked up the Crescent Ridge, Sunrise, and Buckeye Ranch trails to Russel Peak. After a short snack stop there we made a loop using the Mariposa trail and back on the Russel Peak trail before returning on the Seaborg and Bear Creek trails.
