East Bay Regional Parks District has released its Trail Challenge guidebook for 2017. The free, self-guided program includes detailed trail descriptions for hikes in 20 regional parks and trails, ranging from easy to challenging. What’s more, many are wheelchair accessible and dog and equestrian friendly. To complete the challenge, hike five trails or 26.2 miles of trails by Dec. 1, and submit your trail log to receive a commemorative pin (while supplies last). No registration is required and this is an honor system, so it’s a good chance to get some karma points and enjoy nature while exercising! For more information, visit www.ebparks.org/trailschallenge.

Discovery Bay’s Activity Guide for winter and spring is out. Town residents should be receiving a copy in the mail shortly, and anyone can visit www.todb.ca.gov for class listings and registration. Oakley’s programs are scheduled to kick off next week, and while many classes in Antioch and Brentwood and at Liberty Adult Education started up this week, there is still time to register, so check them out and treat yourself to some fun!

Lastly, you deserve a reward for making time to take care of yourself this year.

Boasting frozen custard, Italian ice, cookies and more, Rita’s motto is ‘Ice Custard Happiness.’ For more information, visit www.facebook.com/ritasbrentwood.
