Calero Park Native Plant Hike (South San Jose) 
Sunday, May 05, 2024 10:00am
 

Enjoy the pristine trails of Calero County Park with Tom Lee and Arvind Kumar. We will hike through serpentine grasslands, chaparral and oak woodlands. Some flowers seen in past years at this season include Ithuriel’s spear, lupine, fiddleneck and iris along with red-winged blackbirds.

This hike will be about 3 miles long with an elevation gain of 500 feet. The trail starts with some climb, and wraps around the Calero Reservoir.

Wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots. Wear appropriate layering and a hat. Bring snacks, a sack lunch, and liquids for the day. Dress in layers. Heavy rain cancels.

RSVP is required to join the hike. No drop-ins please and space is limited. See the instructions at the beginning of this Field Trips section to RSVP on Meetup.

Driving directions and parking tips are provided on our Chapter’s Meetup group. We will meet at 10:00am at the main parking area of Calero Park, at 23205 McKean Rd, San Jose, CA 95120.
