Redwood Regional Park | 7867 Redwood Road, Oakland 94619
Oakland is named for the coast live oak, but it was once home to some of the world’s largest redwoods.
Join in for a hike where you’ll walk beneath the “youthful” decedents of those ancient giants and share some forest folklore and fascinating facts about California’s state tree. You might even kiss a banana slug.
This is a moderate hike of four to five miles with several hundred feet of elevation change, lead by Carolyn Schour.
You’ll assemble near the Canyon Meadow Staging Area at the end of the paved road off the Redwood Gate entrance. Bring water, lunch, dress in layers, and wear good hiking shoes. Bring poles if you normally use them. If you have any questions about this outing, email Ken Lavin or phone him at 415-543-6771 x321. Rain cancels the event.
Free, but an RSVP is required.
