We will hike along Palos Colorados Trail, which is lined with coast live oak, California bay and redwood trees. We will see at least five species of native fern, blooming milkmaids, California man-root, fairy bells, and many other natives.
Meet at Palos Colorados Trailhead at the end of Joaquin Miller Court. Joaquin Miller Court is off Mountain Boulevard, which parallels Highway 13. The site is also accessible by AC Transit. The trip will cover about 1.5 miles. The trail follows a steep incline, is generally narrow, and at times traverses uneven and rocky terrain.
