Flowers with Families and Friends:
Welcome to the 2016 Wildflower Season! We are excited to share our brand new preserve Coyote Ridge with you for breathtaking views and stunning wildflowers!
Enjoy a little 1.5 mile round trip hike that will stay at lower elevations, engage in hands-on activities and offers plenty of time to enjoy the flowers. This section is perfect for children, grandparents, and anyone who wants to witness the beauty but doesn't need or want to hike up the hill. Fun activities include art in the sun, with water colors, model magic, and other arts and crafts. Suitable for all ages and purely optional.
We encourage you to bring camp chairs, a picnic lunch, and plenty of water. We recommend a hat that ties down and a windbreaker. It does get breezy. Feel free to bring a little blanket, but we will have some small tarps you can sit on at lunch as well. We will start at 10 am and go until 1 pm. You will be within walking distance of the cars and anyone is welcome to come and go as needed. This experience will be offered Saturdays and Sundays.
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.
To get to Coyote Ridge, Please take Hwy 101 South to Bailey Road and turn left (east). Please go through the stop sign and as the road bends to the left, you will see us on the right hand side. We are less than a mile from the freeway. If you need to look us up, we are just south of the County parks Shooting range on Malech road. If you get to the shooting range, you went too far.
