Senior Stroll at Turtle Back Hill

December 18, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Meet at the Turtle Back Hill trailhead in China Camp.

This lovely spot, perched on the edge of San Pablo Bay, is an ideal destination for a relaxed winter walk. The tree-covered hill, which rises in the center, is encircled by a short loop trail that follows the edge of the salt marsh. We’ll take advantage of this level, dirt pathway to discuss the plants and animals that can be found in each of these habitats. Remember to bring binoculars, if you have them. This walk is for ages 18 and up. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend.

Rain may cancel. If questionable weather, call (415) 893-9527 after 8am on the morning of the event to hear a recorded message if cancelled.

No registration is required.

DIRECTIONS: From Hwy 101 in San Rafael, take the exit for N San Pedro Rd east for 3.1 miles to the Turtle Back and Shoreline trailheads. Parking is available on both sides of the road.
