Experience the delight of discovering early spring wildflowers with docents Lynn Jackson, Kate Gudmundson, Dennis Smith, and Mary Brunkhorst. Descending through chaparral into redwood forest at a leisurely pace, you’ll travel along the Schilling Lake and Bridle Trails on this out-and-back hike. If the timing is right you’ll be treated to a display of fetid adder’s tongue near your shaded creek-side lunch spot. Reservations are required and will be accepted on or after February 7.

Where to Meet: 

Meet at the parking lot on La Honda Road.  From I-280, take the Highway 84/Woodside Road exit. Follow Highway 84/Woodside Road through Woodside and then to a junction with Portola Road at 3.3. miles. Bear right to stay on Highway 84, now La Honda Road. At 4.9 miles from Highway 280, turn left at a brick wall marked 895-897; look for the District sign just inside this gate. The small parking area is on the right about 500 feet from the entrance gate. Please do not drive beyond this lot toward the private residences.

Alternatively, from the junction of Highway 35 (Skyline Boulevard) and Highway 84 in Sky Londa, take Highway 84/La Honda Road north 1.9 miles and turn right at the brick wall marked 895-897.
