  • Moderate Hike

Explore the buckeye trees of Black Mountain with docents Mike Alexander and Kandis Scott on a moderately-paced hike along, and adjacent to, the Bella Vista and Old Ranch Trails. You'll learn about this remarkable species; history, uses, and unique adaptations to California's climate. The buckeye blossoms in May and you'll observe this spectacular, fragrant display in a variety of inspiring and photogenic settings, returning to the same trees you visited in January. This is the second in a series of seasonal hikes, each highlighting one of the buckeye's annual phases. Capable and engaged children aged 12 and older are welcome. Reservations are required and will be accepted on or after May 8.
