Practice Pole Hike at Black Diamond Mines Regional Park in Antioch

On our most recent Practice Pole Hike at Black Diamond Mines Regional Park, we saw some amazing flowers, including this lovely Mariposa Lilly.  Photo taken by Diane of Lafayette on her I-phone – amazing 🙂

On practice Pole Hikes, we refine skills learned in the Basic Skills class AND prior participants of poles classes can come to practice, review and learn new skills.  Black Diamond is a park we do early in the year (in the summer, it’s an oven) and it’s a great place to really use poles for power on the up hill climbs and for support on the steep downhill parts.  The sandstone provides good footing, even when wet.   Poles classes and practice hikes are listed on the calendar 🙂
