Join docents Laura Levin, Dennis Smith, Lynn Jackson, and Bill Korbholz to search for spring-flowering chaparral shrubs and forest wildflowers on a leisurely 3- to 4-mile hike along the Schilling Lake and Bridle Trails. You’ll learn about the exquisite fetid adder’s tongue, and how it interacts with the forest environment, both above and below ground. You’ll hear about the area’s human history too, and see photographs of this former country estate.
From Highway 280 in Woodside, take the Highway 84/Woodside Road exit. Follow Highway 84/Woodside Road through Woodside and then to a junction with Portola Road at 3.3 miles. Bear right to stay on Highway 84, now La Honda Road. At 4.9 miles from Highway 280, turn left at a brick wall marked 895-897. Look for the District sign just inside this gate. The small parking area is on the right about 500 feet from the entrance gate. Please do not drive beyond this lot toward the private residences.
Alternatively, from the junction of Highway 35 (Skyline Boulevard) and Highway 84 in Sky Londa, take Highway 84/La Honda Road north 1.9 miles and turn right at the brick wall marked 895-897.
