Join docents Bob Segalla and Greg Azevedo to share the enjoyment of this Preserve so close to home and take the opportunity to decide if a certain plant smells like maple syrup – many people think it does! A lovely view awaits you along the Orchard Loop and Zinfandel Trails as does the sound of Stevens Creek. Capable children are welcome on this moderately-paced hike. A visit to the Picchetti Winery for wine tasting 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.
