Description

Welcome to the 2017 Wildflower Season! We are excited to share our new preserve Coyote Ridge with you for breathtaking views and stunning wildflowers!

This 7.5 mile round trip hike will gain 900 feet in elevation to the top of the ridge for amazing views and tons of wildflowers specific to these hills. You will have chances to see endangered butterflies, possibly burrowing owls, and all kinds of endangered and threatened plants.

For this experience we will ask you to bring at least one hiking pole, plenty of water, snacks, a hat that ties down and sturdy, good hiking shoes that will support your ankles. The hike includes a steady 2 mile hill climb that promises spectacular sites once completed. Also, due to the steep incline, we do not allow babies, toddlers, or children under 12 unless they are used to hiking 5+ miles at a time. The hike begins at 9 am to allow time to reach the top and to come back down. It will be offered Friday through Sunday.

Caution: The entrance to Coyote Ridge is down the street from the County Park’s shooting range. While there is no danger, we respect that the sound may be upsetting. Once you get around the corner to head up hill or to enjoy the lower section of this trail, the sounds are blocked. However, while we are in the parking area, there may be a few gunshot sounds. If you prefer to move away from the area before the rest of the group, please let us know and we can make arrangements for you to do so and the rest of the group will catch up.

For any additional questions or concerns, please the Wildflower Hotline at 408-754-4555.

If you are interested in a hike during the week, please contact us to schedule one.

Directions:

Take Highway 101 and exit Bailey Avenue. Take Bailey Avemue east for 1/4 mile. The road will turn to the left and a green gate will be located on your right hand side. Look for the Open Space Authority event sign, and we will be there to greet you!
