Banana Slug Redwood Ride

July 12, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

| Free; Reservations required.

Join docents Patty Lovelace and Dave Kocsis for a ride through the enchanted redwood forest of this Preserve. You’ll meet at the coast and leisurely ride/climb up to Skyline Boulevard, observing the many facets of life in the redwoods as you go. After a rest at the top, you’ll ride back down to sea level on some of the best single-track trails around, through the fog or sun – depending on the weather – with fantastic coast views. This intermediate ride will cover a total distance of approximately 11 miles with 1,800-feet of climbing. Reservations are required and will be accepted on or after June 25.  Approximate total 11 miles.

Where to Meet:
Meet at the Purisima Creek trailhead on Purisima Creek Road. From the Highway 92 and Highway 1 intersection in Half Moon Bay, travel south on Highway 1 approximately 4.3 miles. Turn left on Verde Road. After turning on Verde Rd. and traveling 0.25 miles, continue straight to remain on what becomes Purisima Creek Rd. (Verde Rd. splits off to the right.) Travel approximately 3.7 miles on Purisima Creek Rd. to reach the Preserve.
