Contact Ken at (650) 591-8560 or email Dee Himes at dee4cnps[at]

Join Ken and Dee Himes on a 3-4 mile hike in this mostly shady woodland of mixed evergreens including redwoods, madrones, sycamores, alders and big leaf maples. There are also isolated population of Oregon grape (Berberis nervosa) here, which is more commonly found north of the Golden Gate. We may see some fall color changes and remnants of fruits and capsules.

We’ll meet in the parking lot. The hike will be moderate in intensity, with an elevation gain of about 700 feet. We will walk at a fairly leisurely pace, stopping for lunch about halfway. Be sure to wear good hiking shoes. A walking stick could be useful. Bring lunch / snack and water. 

Space is limited. No drop-ins. RSVP is required on Meetup. Heavy rain cancels. For more information contact Ken at (650) 591-8560 or email Dee Himes at dee4cnps[at]
