Bring your binoculars to explore a newly transformed peninsula (Cooley Landing Park, City of East Palo Alto) within the Preserve with docents Lynn Jackson, Dennis Smith, and Bill Korbholz. The site remediation work and a new trail loop gives you a chance to watch the resident and over-wintering birds from a new perspective. This leisurely hike will cover about two miles with frequent stops.
To reach the southern portion of the Preserve, take the University Avenue exit (toward East Palo Alto) from Highway 101. (From southbound Highway 101, turn left on University Avenue. From northbound Highway 101, the freeway exit will dead-end into the stoplight for Donohoe Street. Turn left on Donohoe Street, then turn right on University Avenue.) Continue on University Avenue (north) for about 3 long blocks. Turn right on Bay Road. Follow Bay Road to the very end, continuing through gate RW01 (about 1 mile total). Note: Bay Road narrows and becomes a dirt road. The Preserve parking area is on the left.
