Approximate Total Miles:

  • Moderate Hike
  • Meal Break

Join docents Dennis Smith, Lynn Jackson, Kate Gudmundson, and Mary Brunkhorst on an annual search for the wild turkeys that will NOT be part of your Thanksgiving holiday dinner. Participants on past Trots have enjoyed anywhere from dozens to none of these wonderful birds, so sightings aren’t guaranteed. Either way, you’ll enjoy the colors of fall as you ascend about 800 feet on this moderately-paced hike along the Rogue Valley and Upper Rogue Valley Trails to a vista point for lunch and a terrific view. You’ll return on a trail to be selected based on weather conditions.

Where to Meet: 

Meet near the restroom at the bottom of the hill in the Preserve parking lot farthest to the right. From I-280, take Foothill Boulevard south and turn right almost immediately onto Cristo Rey Drive.  Continue about 1 mile, veer right around the traffic circle, and turn left into the park.  After entering the Preserve, turn right and drive approximately 0.3 miles to the parking lot.
