Join docents Dave Kocsis, Paul Wineman, and Steve Brugler to see how the motion of the San Andreas Fault has shaped the Santa Cruz Mountains while leaving some evidence behind and helping to create a variety of natural communities. On this 7-mile, moderately-paced hike you’ll descend into Stevens Canyon, meander along Stevens Creek through mixed evergreen forests and riparian areas, and then ascend Black Mountain for a commanding view of the entire South Bay and the Santa Cruz Mountains.
Meet at the Monte Bello Preserve parking lot located on Page Mill Road (across from Los Trancos Preserve), 7 miles west of I-280 or 1.5 miles east of Skyline Boulevard. Those traveling from I-280 on Page Mill Rd. should allow approximately 35 minutes travel time.
