It’s spring-time! Join docents Martin Manley and Linda Smith for a moderately-paced, 4-mile hike through Picchetti Ranch Preserve to check out the wildflowers that were nourished by the winter rains. En route you’ll discuss the many varieties of plant communities that can be found in this relatively small preserve and see what creatures might be lurking in the pond. If the weather is fine, bring a lunch to enjoy at the picnic tables down by Stevens Creek. At the end of the trip you’ll have the option to do a little wine tasting at Picchetti Winery on your own.
Meet at the Picchetti Ranch Preserve parking lot. From the intersection of I-280 and Foothill Expressway, go 3.5 miles southwest (toward the mountains) on Foothill Boulevard/Stevens Canyon Road. Turn right on Montebello Road. The preserve is 0.5 miles up Montebello Rd. on the left.
