THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19.
Join Ken and Dee Himes for a hike along the Summit Loop Trail to see early flowering plants in the coastal scrub and coastal grassland plant communities. We expect to see footsteps of spring (Sanicula arctopoides), Franciscan wallflower (Erysimum franciscanum) and the endemic San Bruno Mountain manzanita (Arctostaphylos imbricata). The hike will be 3.5 to 4 miles in length with 800 feet in elevation changes.
Dress warmly in layers as it can be very windy, and wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots. Hiking poles are recommended as some areas are very steep. Bring snacks, a sack lunch and liquids for the day. Heavy rain cancels.
Directions: From Hwy. 101 northbound, take the Old Bay- shore/Brisbane exit and proceed north on Old Bayshore, past the town of Brisbane. Make a left turn onto Guadalupe Cyn. Pkwy., and follow it uphill (west) about a mile and a half to the park entrance. We will meet at the parking lot just beyond the entrance kiosk. There is a $6/day parking fee at the pay station; bring exact change or credit card.
