Approximate Total Miles: 
  • Moderate Hike
  • Suitable for children*
  • Meal Break

Explore the world of arachnids with spider-loving docents Debbi Brusco, Jack Owicki, and Sara Witt. With luck, a tarantula may cross your path as you search for sometimes-timid creatures that you might usually be inclined to avoid. This hike will cover about 4 miles at a leisurely pace on the Canyon Trail, in addition to other trails. Capable, attentive children, age 10 years or older are welcome. Bring a flashlight with a red filter or cellophane covering, plastic to sit on, and your meal. Reservations are required and will be accepted on or after August 27.

Meet at the Preserve parking lot on Page Mill Road (across from Los Trancos Preserve), 7 miles west of I-280 or 1.5 miles east of Skyline Boulevard. Those traveling from I-280 on Page Mill Rd. should allow approximately 35 minutes travel time.
