Description

This spring, the Open Space Authority will be opening up the currently by-reservation-only Diablo Foothills preserve just south of Gilroy to members of the public. NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED for these public access weekend days, which will be separated by activity. Saturdays, April 27 and May 4, will be open for walking and mountain biking. Sundays, April 28 and May 5, will be open for walking and horseback riding.

The preserve offers over 7 miles of trails to explore! Check out our recommended routes with three different levels for varying fitness levels and abilities and download the trail map at http://news.openspaceauthority.org/diablo-foothills-spring.

A gently-paced docent-led nature walk will be offered each day from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Outdoor arts and crafts will also be available each day from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED FOR THESE ACTIVITES.

Sign up for a docent-led activity below!

Photography Hike at Diablo Foothills
Sunday, May 6
9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Join Authority volunteers for a leisurely walk around Diablo Foothills Preserve where they will show you how to capture stunning nature photographs. This hike starts at 9:00 am to beat the heat and catch the morning light before most of the public arrives. Come and learn how nature photographers get their incredible shots!

Bring Your Own Horse
Sunday, May 6
11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Do you have your own horse? Would you like to come ride at Diablo Foothills Preserve down in south county? Our equestrian docent, Carolyn, would love to lead you on an interpretive ride of this fascinating new location. The ride is under 4 miles, and on this day the preserve will be open exclusively for equestrians and hikers. Registration is required and is for the trailer parking space. If you can and would like to double up with a buddy, please feel free to do so.
