Group: Midpeninsula Open Space Preserve
When: Wednesday, August 16, 10:30 am to 2:30 pm
Where: Bear Creek Redwoods Preserve
Enjoy some quiet, less traveled trails on this moderately-paced hike with docents Kate Gudmundson and Lynn Jackson. This approximately 500-foot elevation gain hike will take you along a creek, by ponds, and through the woods. You’ll look for a variety of beautiful lingering wildflowers and feel the awe of the amazing redwoods for which this Preserve was named on this out and back hike. (Note: Participants will carpool to the trailhead.)
Where to Meet: Meet at the parking lot located at the northeast corner of Highway 9 and Santa Cruz Avenue in Los Gatos. The sign at the lot says: “Northside lot - Free Limited Parking.” Take Highway 17 south toward Los Gatos. Exit at Hwy. 9-Los Gatos/Saratoga and continue west on Hwy. 9 (approximately 0.33 miles) to the parking lot, located on your right just before Santa Cruz Ave. Participants will carpool to the activity location.
