Join us on Saturday, April 4th at San McDonald Park (13435 Pescadero Creek Road, Loma Mar 94021) for a hike through some of the oldest residents of San Mateo County! Enjoy towering redwood forests along your hike with the opportunity to view Heritage Grove, a spectacular old growth section of forest. Beautiful trilliums, Douglas Iris, and other wildflowers will be in bloom as the forest floor comes to life in the spring! You’ll also learn about the rich logging history of the area and the inspiring life of Sam McDonald, for whom the park is named. There will be two hikes offered, one more rigorous at about 4.5 miles in length and another more gentle at about 1 mile in length.
Park rangers and volunteer docents lead participants on a monthly hike, sharing information about the park’s unique features and the natural history. Take A Hike attracts individuals and families looking for ways to enjoy the outdoors while incorporating exercise and learning.
New this year, Take A Hike joins the Healthy Parks, Healthy People Bay Area – a collaborative of Bay Area park agencies encouraging Bay Area residents to explore parks while improving their mental and physical health.
