Greenbelt Alliance is celebrating 65 years of Bay Area adventures
Briones has ridges and valleys that support several natural habitats, including grasslands, oak woodlands, and a riparian forest. You’ll enjoy spring wildflowers in each of them!
The middle part of the hike (5.5 miles, moderate level), before and after our lunch stop, will feature the most diverse wildflowers and native plants. While there is some steep uphill climbing on the Briones Crest Trail, it is mostly downhill after lunch. You will stop frequently to identify plants so we won’t get too out of breath!
