Meet at the Preserve parking lot on Montebello Road. From the intersection of I-280 and Foothill Expressway, go 3.5 miles southwest (toward the mountains) on Foothill Boulevard/Stevens Canyon Road. Turn right on Montebello Rd. The Preserve is 0.5 miles up Montebello Rd. on the left.
Escape for a while from the holiday crowds! There are a wide variety of plant communities in the Bay Area, and many are found in this Preserve. Join docents Martin Manley and Linda Smith for a moderately-paced hike. You’ll discuss how the varieties of plant communities have adapted to their unique environments. If the weather allows, a lunch break is planned at the picnic tables down by Stevens Creek. At the end of the trip you’ll have the option for a little wine tasting (on your own) at Picchetti Winery. Please note that a shortened version of this hike will go ahead in light or moderate rain — it can be a wonderful time to see this Preserve if you have good rain gear.
