What you'll do

Want an outdoor experience where we can maintain social distance? We can do this hike 6 feet or more apart from one another. We’ll start out with a warm up, departing from the parking lot with a mellow walk in the sorrel-carpeted forest for about a mile, then follow the banks of the beautiful creek past a couple of bridges. We’ll hike past thimbleberry plants and banana slugs in the spring to a spot where there’s a few fish. This ~5 mile hike will take us on a 600ft ascent past fern and moss covered rocks as we make a loop and stop at some old ruins for a snack and a stretch. The historic stones look like a scene out of Indiana Jones! These features played an important part in local Bay Area history during the 1800’s. The hike makes a “lollipop loop” that takes about 3 hours, and the part we double-back on feels like a different hike on the return trip because of the changing light. In the summer it can be 10 degrees cooler under the shade of the redwoods. Frequently we get to see banana slugs, butterflies, and sometimes there are woodpeckers and other birds. In the autumn great big yellow maple leaves the size of small dinner plates drift gracefully to the forest floor, brightening the scene. We’ll let you know where to be careful to avoid poison oak, when to look out for the different kinds of ferns, and where to spot wild strawberry plants in the summertime!

I’ve been hiking these trails for over 10 years and know them like the back of my hand. It is my passion to introduce this special place to people. I will show you interesting plants, some edible, and historical points of interest, as well as local wildlife. I’m also first aid certified and very familiar with the challenges of the trail.

Where you'll be

Even before we get to the trail there’s a lot of interesting work that the high school is doing in the area. From there you’ll get to see a dam and other areas where the school does some research, etc. As we move down the trail there’s an old giant tree that fell within the last couple of years. I’ve spotted banana slugs, birds, moles, brilliant purple fungus, deer, a coyote, and more on these trails!
