Join docents Bob Segalla, Paul Billig, and Steve Brugler to enjoy this Preserve close to home. You’ll discover if the everlasting plant smells like maple syrup and find a lovely view along the Orchard Loop and Zinfandel Trails. Listen to the sound of Stevens Creek and eat your lunch at a County Park picnic area. Capable children welcome on this moderately-paced, 4-mile hike with a couple of 200-foot climbs. A visit to the Picchetti Winery is optional (on your own) at the hike’s end.
Meet at the Preserve parking lot on Montebello Road. 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 Rd. The Preserve is 0.5 miles up Montebello Rd. on the left.
