Join Alf Fengler and Ken and Dee Himes for a proper start to the spring wildflower season, with a pleasant walk through this easily accessible Open Space Preserve. We often see over 1,000 individual wildflowers in bloom even this early in the season!

As experienced docents at Edgewood, Alf and Ken will be able to point out some flowering plants in Pulgas Ridge that don’t occur at Edgewood, such as fetid adder’s tongue (Scoliopus bigelovii) and coast man-root (Marah oreganus).

This trip will be an easy 3-mile loop hike through oak woodland, mixed evergreen woodland, chamise chaparral and coastal scrub, combined with a bit of riparian woodland. If needed, we will split into two or three groups to provide a more individualized experience.

The trip will include an elevation gain and loss of about 400 feet. For more information contact Alf Fengler at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or (650) 345-7045. Heavy rain cancels.

Directions: From I-280, take the Edgewood Rd. exit in San Carlos and head east. Go downhill to the first left, which will be Crestview Dr. Make an immediate left at Edmonds Rd. and proceed to the preserve parking lot on the right. If the lot is full, park on the opposite side of the road in the large unpaved area. We’ll meet in the parking lot.
