Join docents Greg Azevedo and Bob Segalla for a 3.5-mile, leisurely-paced walk through this less-traveled section of Monte Bello Preserve on the Waterwheel Creek Trail. If the weather is clear, expect to see some spectacular views of the Santa Clara Valley and portions of the Santa Cruz Mountains! This walk will include the history of the Preserve and the Open Space District, and information about some of the plants, animals, and geology of the area. Pace will vary with occasional stops to view and discuss nature topics along the trail. No lunch stop, but a short snack break is planned midway. (Note: Participants will carpool to the trailhead.) Reservations are required and will be accepted on or after May 13.
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. Participants will carpool to the trailhead for this activity.
Preregistration is required. Find out more at the MROSD page for this event.
