Don't Forget: Pack a windbreaker, water, snacks, and please wear comfortable shoes.
March Hike: La Honda Creek Preserve
Saturday, March 17 (Meet us at 9:30am)
This is a 6-mile hike with the possibility of a 3-mile extension. We will get a great workout as we make steep climbs along the way. This newly opened scenic 6,142-acre expanse in rural San Mateo County was originally part of an 1830s Mexican land grant called Rancho San Gregorio. In the 1860s, it became a hideout for members of the Jesse James gang. It was, and still is today, a working cattle ranch where cattle graze along the trail. With rolling hills, grasslands, redwoods and the Pacific Ocean in the distance, the views are stunning.
April Hike: Russian Ridge Open Space Preserve
Saturday, April 21 (Meet us at 10:00am)
Join us on this 5 mile long hike for some short, but invigorating uphill climbs. It features diverse plant communities, steep topography and views of both the SF Bay and Pacific Ocean—a great hike for a spring day! The trail passes over Borel Hill, the highest named point in San Mateo County, offering a full 360-degree view. After the hike, why not visit the nearby nature center and/or visit the nearby Thomas Fogarty winery?
