Del Valle Regional Park, Fiesta Grande Picnic Area
Plan to arrive by 8 a.m. The event kicks off at 8:30 a.m. with announcements and a blessing. We start out together, but you'll hike at your own pace. We’ve mapped out an out-and-back 4.4-mile route with an optional moderate loop that climbs to a scenic overlook. Or, go with our 1.7-mile route for an easy, flat stroll. Combine all three legs for a 6-mile excursion. Trail monitors will be positioned along all routes to help guide the way. Click here for trail information.
A complimentary barbecue lunch, sponsored by MCE Corp., will be served at our staging grounds at the Fiesta Grande Picnic Area at about 11 a.m.
Parking is included with your registration fee; a link to download your parking permit will be provided in your registration confirmation email; print out the permit and bring to the park (mobile screenshots are not accepted).

Hike for Hope is a celebration of the outdoors and, for many participants, a remembrance of family and other loved ones who have departed us. It's also a fundraiser for Hope Hospice, which has been caring for families throughout the Tri-Valley and neighboring East Bay cities since 1980.
All of the hike's net proceeds help Hope Hospice care for more than 700 patients and their families each year.
Hope helps patients affirm life and live every day to the fullest by providing compassionate end-of-life care of exceptional quality, grief support services, and community education.
As a community-driven non-profit organization, Hope Hospice serves everyone regardless of their insurance or income status, nation of origin, or religion. Your donation enables Hope to provide these services throughout the year.
