We’ll start the morning with a slow ascent from the valley floor to San Geronimo Ridge. It’s a long climb but once we reach the top we’ll enjoy amazing views and the pygmy Sargent cypress forest that makes this preserve so unique. For lunch we’ll drop down to a shaded clearing among towering Redwoods and Douglas-firs. Distance: 5 miles. Elevation change: 1,200 feet.

Remember to bring a lunch and binoculars if you have them. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend.

Air Quality Index (AQI) that exceeds 150 on, or other extreme weather may cancel events. Check the calendar or call (415) 473-6086 after 7am on the morning of the event to hear a recorded message if canceled.
