Come and enjoy this beautiful, serene preserve in the heat of summer. Unwind amongst the magnificent redwoods, lush green ferns, and late summer wildflowers with your welcoming docents Farhana Kazi, and Bill and Marilyn Bauriedel. You’ll be graced with a meandering creek accompanying you along the Purisima Creek Trail up to the Craig Britton Trail, and may be joined by banana slugs still active in late season and sheltering in the shade. This hike route will have a 400-foot elevation gain.
