Spring Saunter in Shell Ridge

March 22, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Spring has finally sprung. Time to head outdoors and greet our early season wildflowers.

Our hike takes us over high ridges, across rolling valleys, and along steep canyons in Shell Ridge Open Space. Along the way, we’ll enjoy great vistas, springtime flora, fossils from a prehistoric sea, and a vernal pond or two.

Shell Ridge was saved from sprawl development in the 1970s through the work of local citizens groups. Greenbelt Alliance partners with local groups today to help preserve our open space and make the Bay Area climate-resilient.

TOTAL DISTANCE
This is a moderate hike of 4-1/2 miles with several hundred feet in elevation change.

LEADER
Ken Lavin

WEATHER POLICY
Rain cancels.

COST
Free; RSVP required.

WHERE TO MEET
We’ll assemble near the Patrick Hanna Grove picnic area. There are restrooms at our meeting location.

NOTES
Bring water and snacks or lunch. Dress in layers and wear good hiking shoes. Bring poles if you normally use them. If you have questions about this outing email Ken Lavin or phone (415) 543-6771 x321.
