Approximate Total Miles: 
4.5
  • Moderate Hike

You’ll explore what early winter has to offer with docents Chris MacIntosh and Susan Bernhard. Early rains may have fungi popping up, robins may be feasting on berries, and fall colors may linger. This exploration will loop along the Peters Creek and Long Ridge Trails where you’ll enjoy the view toward the Pacific Ocean along the way (fog permitting). This will be a moderately-paced hike with frequent stops, as well as steep sections. Suitable for capable children who enjoy hiking and are curious about nature.

Where to Meet: 

Meet at the roadside pullout area on the west side of Skyline Boulevard, 3.6 miles north of Highway 9 or 3.3 miles south of Page Mill Road.  If you are coming from the north on Skyline Blvd., the pullout is just past Portola Heights Road on the right.  From the south, the pullout is near the Palo Alto city limits sign on the right. There is additional parking across Skyline Blvd. at the Grizzly Flat trailhead (Santa Clara County Park).
