Mount Hamilton Road Trip (San Jose) 
Sunday, June 10, 2018 10:00am

Join Stephen Rosenthal for a special road trip up Mount Hamilton Road and then down San Antonio Valley Road. The area has some plants found nowhere else. We will be stopping along the road at about eight pull-outs to see what’s blooming.

The west side, with several elevation changes, explores different plant communities with many wildflowers. The east slope, steep and dry, has its own interesting flora. We expect to see several rare plants such as Lomatium observatorium, as well as a nice collection of blazing star, a beautiful flower after which our newsletter is named.

We expect about 70 miles of driving round trip. Mount Hamilton Road is a steep, narrow, twisting mountain road. We’ll form carpools at the meeting spot. Bring lunch, snacks, and plenty of water. Riders will share gasoline costs with drivers. We expect the trip to last until about 4pm or later.

There will be limited hiking, probably less than 1 mile total. This trip is open to CNPS members only. Please RSVP to Steve Rosenthal This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or (408) 923- 6562 to reserve your spot and get carpooling directions.
