Coppertone and I finally found the time to get out and do some walking.  We chose Iron Horse in part because of Ike's sandwich shop near our trailhead.  We did two out and back legs in opposite directions with a stop for lunch in the middle.

The paved, flat path was as easy as could be.  The only struggle was the mileage we had put in after being a bit inactive for too long.  Too much time on the computer and not enough on the trail!

The only guide dedicated entirely to hiking San Francisco’s East Bay has been revised and updated, and features 3 new trips in Contra Costa County. Includes 56 trips for hiking, bicycling, and horseback riding on oak-studded hills, grassy ridges, rocky peaks, forested valleys, and salt-marsh shoreline. East Bay Trails is the most complete and up-to-date trail guide for Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. While the route descriptions pertain to hiking most of all, other outdoor enthusiasts-fitness walkers, joggers, equestrians, and bicyclists-will also find them useful.
