  • Moderate Hike

Prior to European settlement, the Bay Area was home to a mosaic of Native American tribal communities, many of the early inhabitants frequented the Santa Cruz Mountains. Join docents Kim Borick and Marie Faust Evitt 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 material used by California Native people and of their practices in managing the local landscape. You’ll walk where Native people walked and discover what drew the Ohlone people time and again to these mountains. Appropriate for children aged 9 years and older. Bring lunch to enjoy at Alpine Pond following the hike!

Meet at the main Preserve parking lot on the northwest corner of the Skyline Boulevard (Highway 35) and Page Mill/Alpine Road intersection (across Skyline Blvd. on the right). Those traveling from I-280 on Page Mill Rd. should allow approximately 40 minutes travel time.
