Hanson Hills Property Tour
Sat, September 23, 2017, 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM PDT
Discover one of Save Mount Diablo’s newest property acquisitions, Hanson Hills, where blue oak ridges meet miles of sky and pathways in all directions lead towards other parks and preserves. A short distance away from its entrance on busy Marsh Creek Road, you will enter a quiet secluded narrow canyon by a streambed that will lead you to living postcard views of Mount Diablo you have never seen before.
The outing will be a short, steep tour of the property, only a hop, skip and a jump away from the East Bay Regional Park District’s new Deer Valley Regional Preserve. Be sure to dress in layers and wear sturdy boots or shoes; bring plenty of water, sunscreen and a snack. Heavy rain cancels the event.
