Contact Ken at (650) 591-8560

Join Ken and Dee Himes on a 3-4 mile hike in this mostly shady woodland of mixed evergreens including redwoods, madrones, sycamores, alders and big leaf maples. There are also isolated populations of Oregon grape (Berberis nervosa) here, which is more commonly found north of the Golden Gate. We expect to see different types of fruiting bodies and some fall color changes.

We’ll meet in the parking lot. The hike will be moderate in intensity, with an elevation gain of about 700 feet. We will walk at a fairly leisurely pace, stopping for lunch about halfway. Be sure to wear good hiking shoes. A walking stick could be useful. Bring a lunch and plenty of water. There is a $6 fee per car. Heavy rain cancels. For more information contact Ken at (650) 591-8560.

Directions: From Hwy. 101, take the Bailey Ave. exit to head southwest on Bailey 3.2 mi. to McKean Rd. Turn left onto McKean. (McKean becomes Uvas Rd. 2.2 mi. south of Bailey.) From Bailey travel 6 mi. south on McKean/ Uvas Rd. and turn right onto Croy Rd. Continue 4.4 mi. on Croy, through Sveadal (a private resort), to reach the Park entrance.
