View from the Ridge

February 6, 2016 @ 10:30 am - 3:30 pm

Join docents Bob Segalla and Greg Azevedo to explore what this Preserve has to offer. You can expect newts along the lush Peters Creek Trail and enjoy a tranquil pond, green forests, ridges, and grasslands. You’ll stop for an ocean view at the Wallace Stegner bench. This moderately-paced hike is suitable for capable children.

 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).
