Meet at the Purisima Creek trailhead on Purisima Creek Road. From the Highway 92 and Highway 1 intersection in Half Moon Bay, travel south on Highway 1 approximately 4.3 miles. Turn left on Verde Road. After turning on Verde Rd. and traveling 0.25 miles, continue straight to remain on what becomes Purisima Creek Rd. (Verde Rd. splits off to the right.) Travel approximately 3.7 miles on Purisima Creek Rd. to reach the Preserve.
Experience the canyon at its best when streams are roaring, waterfalls are tumbling, and newts and banana slugs are having the time of their lives. Join docents Chris Christensen, Helena Cohen, and Sam Berry for a moderately-paced winter walk on the wild side along the Purisima Creek and Craig Britton Trails. Be prepared for wet weather and a little mud. Reservations are required and will be accepted on or after February 9.
