T. Lema Golf Course - June 18, '11

Walking Distance: 7.34 miles
Walking Time: 3 hrs., 47 min. (3:30 - 7:17 p.m.)
Start and End Point: - One-way walk that started at San Leandro Marina area, and ended at W. Winton Ave., in Hayward, CA

This long walk (mostly solid red line trail on the Bay Trail map) started in the San Leandro Marina area, and took us out to a peninsula populated by ground squirrels and a Par Course (surrounding the Small Boat Lagoon), and then back, and south along the Tony Lema Golf Course. The walk was so long, and vertical, that I needed to include two different map segments (right).

Thank you to Alec for driving and for joining me on today's walk.

The Bay Trail continued along the baylands, past some interesting whale murals, and eventually we exited the trail in Hayward (Hayward Regional Shoreline Park) near W. Winton Ave. (We had a ride back to our car in San Leandro.)
