Following Ohlone People's Footsteps
Saturday, April 13 10:00am to 1:00pm
Approximate Total Miles: 
  • Moderate Hike

Prior to European settlement, the Bay Area was home to a mosaic of Native American tribal communities and many frequented the Santa Cruz Mountains. Join docents Kim Borick and Sarah Schoen for a leisurely paced hike with frequent stops along the Ipiwa and Sunny Jim Trails. Historical and cultural background will be provided along with examples of indigenous materials used by tribal groups and their practices in managing this landscape’s natural resources. You’ll discover what drew the Ohlone people time and again to these mountains. Appropriate for children aged 12 and older. Bring lunch to enjoy at Alpine Pond following the hike!
