We'll hike portions of the Seaview, Arroyo, and Volmer Peak trails. Along the way, we'll learn about the edible, medicinal, and cultural uses of native plants and wildflowers.

Our route takes us to a mysterious stone wall and a funky labyrinth at an old Nike site. If the day is clear, we'll enjoy spectacular views that can include the Sierra, Farallon Islands, and much of the North Bay.


Approximately 4 miles with a 500 foot elevation gain.

Alan Siegel has hiked the East Bay hills almost daily since the early 1970's, trying to learn every plant and its edible, medicinal, and cultural uses, and to discover and use native plants that thrive in gardens that are frequently visited by deer. Alan is a volunteer docent at the Regional Parks Botanic Garden (EBRPD) in Tilden Park (www.nativeplants.org) where he enjoys meals of stinging nettles washed down with Yerba Buena tea. As a psychologist, Alan is interested in how cultures discovered the uses of plants and enjoys sharing stories of how diverse peoples use plants in unique ways. Alan has led native plant and nature awareness education walks for adults and children for 45 years.
