Event description

Description

Start the year off right with a hike in Oakland's majestic redwood forest. We'll search for ladybug slumber parties (clusters of ladybird beetles on logs and ferns) and give a New Year's greeting to banana slugs we encounter along the trail.

Redwood Creek is home to a population of rainbow trout and newts, so we'll also look for them when we walk along the stream.

TOTAL DISTANCE
This a moderate hike of about five miles with less than 1,000 feet in elevation change.

LEADER
Carolyn Schour

WEATHER POLICY
Rain cancels.

COST
Free, RSVP required.

WHERE TO MEET
We'll assemble at the Canyon Meadow Staging Area. Enter the park at the Redwood Gate entrance off of Redwood Road. Drive to the paved parking lot at the end of the road into the park. If that lot is full, you can circle back to one of the overflow lots along the entrance road. There are restrooms near the beginning of the hike, and also along the way. There is a $5 per vehicle park entrance fee, but it is usually not collected in wintertime.

NOTES
Bring water, lunch. dress in layers, and wear good hiking shoes. Bring poles if you normally use them. If you have questions about this outing email Ken Lavin or phone (415) 543-6771 x 321.
