Discover the beauty and diversity of the foothills on a fast-paced, 10-mile, 2,100-foot gain hike from the lowest point in the Preserve to the highest, followed by a loop through neighboring Stevens Creek County Park. Docents Fran Keeler and Ranjana Sharma will guide you through a variety of plant communities, from the canyons to the hilltops, including panoramic views from San Francisco to south San Jose. A repeat of this hike is planned for spring, summer and autumn to observe the changes.
