Description
Waypoints (11)

This is a 60 mile route on existing trails from Castro Valley Our Lady of Grace church to Brentwood Immaculate Heart church. It is designed to be done in stages, and could be done as a multiday hike with some preplanning. It could be a good training exercise for those planning to do the Camino de Santiago. Aaron Alcorn was a young man who died far to soon at the age of 37, and Our Lady of Grace was his home church. The route ends at Immaculate Heart in Brentwood, the home church of some of his cousins. It is a beautiful route through a lot of public open space in the heart of an urban area.
