Renew your sense of wonder with a hike into early spring. The focus will be on the early spring wildflowers and mushrooms that accompany the joyful feeling of being in a spring wonderland. Join naturalist John Lynch as we take a slow paced 5 mile nature hike that will start in the Beauty Ranch and end at the Ancient Redwood. With the abundant rains some of the early bloomers we should see are Indian Warrior, Mission Bells, Canyon Delphinium, Hound's Tongue and Western Trillium. As we return to the Beauty Ranch you will feel happy and refreshed after exploring nature with us during this beautiful season of the year.
Limited to 20 participants
We suggest you wear sturdy shoes, bring water, snacks and binoculars on this 3 hour, moderate hike open to all ages 11 and up. Be prepared for a few muddy trails and stream crossings.
