Explore Rancho Cañada del Oro Open Space Preserve at night!
Join us to explore Rancho Cañada del Oro at night! Docent Paul will lead you on a 4.5-mile round-trip hike around this beautiful open space preserve located in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The hike begins before sunset and rises 700 feet along the Mayfair Ranch Trail to the picnic table overlook. Bring a dinner or snack to enjoy while we wait for night to fall. Then, using flashlights, we will hike the same trail back. Along the way, experience the nighttime sights and sounds of the preserve that are so different than during the day!
Be sure to bring food (snacks or a packed dinner), water, flashlight, and a light jacket to put on when it gets cool after sunset. This will be an out-and-back hike of about 4.5 miles with an elevation gain of 700 feet. Registration is required, and a waiting list will be available if this event fills up.
