The Wallace Stegner Special

Saturday, November 2 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join docents Susan Bernhard, Ann Reisenauer, and Veronica Chouinard for a moderately-paced hike along the Peters Creek and Long Ridge Trails. You’ll see evidence of the interesting human history of this Preserve and stop midway for a snack at the Wallace Stegner Bench to share a few inspiring words about the importance of preserving wild places. The bench marks one of Stegner’s favorite overlooks and affords sweeping views of the Santa Cruz Mountains and Pacific Ocean.

Where to Meet:

Meet at the roadside pullout area on the west side of Skyline Boulevard, 3.6 miles north of Highway 9 or 3.3 miles south of Page Mill Road.  If you are coming from the north on Skyline Blvd., the pullout is just past Portola Heights Road on the right.  From the south, the pullout is near the Palo Alto city limits sign on the right. There is additional parking across Skyline Blvd. at the Grizzly Flat trailhead (Santa Clara County Park).
