The UCSF Mt. Sutro OSP is a 61-acre fragment of the more than 2,000 acres of trees planted by Adolf Sutro in the late 19th century and now cared for by the Sutro Stewards (https://www.sutrostewards.org/trail-map). We will be walking about 2 miles of trails through the forest and around the summit. There will be some uphill climbing and the narrow, unpaved trails can be rocky in places. Winter birds such as Fox Sparrow and Ruby-crowned Kinglets are abundant. Mt. Sutro is also a great place to get close views and listening opportunities of some of the San Francisco resident species.
Parking and meeting at the UCSF Woods Lot at 100 Medical Center Way at 8:30 a.m. We are given permission through UCSF/Sutro Stewards to use the parking lot for the morning of December 21, so you can disregard the “Permit Only” signs.
The restrooms are located at the Aldea Community Center, 155 Johnstone Way, and we will make our way over there through the trails about one hour in to the walk. If you need directions or advice on how to get there, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com.
