New logbook as of February 2005. Thank you.

Clues: Easy
Trail Difficulty: Moderate as you must hike up and down some hills on .5 mile trail.

Traveling in California I noticed that regardless of the posted speed limit on the interstate, cars race in and out of traffic with whatever speed they like. As a result, I have taken the liberty to repost the California speed limit signs.

From I-80 head east on San Pablo Dam Road exit which eventually will take you south through El Sobronte. The park will be on your left.

From I-680 take Route 24 west toward Lafayette. Take the Orinda exit and travel north on the Camino Pablo/San Pablo Dam Road until the Kennedy Grove Park is on your right.

A Speed Limit: Starting from the overflow parking lot north of the park fee entrance, head up the Laurel Loop Trail. Go left at the top of the trail and as you descend you will find a five/six headed tree on the left. To its left rear rests a stump with a letterbox inside.

***Poison Oak alert as you seek Reality LB***

Reality: Continue along this trail past the horseshoe pits. Once you reach an intersection continue straight with the tree, table and bars on your left. “Reality” awaits you in the south side of the 2nd mangled tree on the right.
