Approximate Total Miles: 
  • Easy Hike
  • Suitable for children*

Join docents Greg Azevedo and Bob Segalla for a leisurely-paced walk through a less traveled section of this Preserve on the Waterwheel Creek Trail. If the weather is clear, expect to see some spectacular views of the Santa Clara Valley and portions of the Santa Cruz Mountains. This walk with occasional stops will include the history of the Preserve and the District, and you’ll learn about the plants, animals, and geology of the area. A short snack break is planned midway. This minimal elevation gain hike is well suited for children and those needing a less physically challenging outing. (Note: Participants will carpool to the trailhead.) Reservations are required and will be accepted on or after May 14. 

Where to Meet: 

For this activity at Monte Bello Preserve, meet at the Picchetti Ranch Preserve parking lot.
