  • Strenuous Hike

If “stay healthy” is one of your New Year’s resolutions, you can start with a fast paced aerobic hike with docents Huey-Shin Yuan, Vivian Neou, Ray Curiel, and Joyce Tang. You’ll explore some less travelled trails of this Preserve starting from Waterwheel Creek to Adobe Creek to Indian Creek Trail as you transition through mixed evergreen forest, chaparral, and grassland communities. You’ll enjoy beautiful views of the Santa Cruz Mountains from the top of Black Mountain on this vigorous hike with over 2,000 feet of elevation gain. (Note: Participants will carpool to the trailhead.)

For this activity at Monte Bello Preserve, meet at the Picchetti Ranch Preserve parking lot.
