Walking down into Stevens Creek Canyon, docents Debbie Mytels and Ping Li will help you identify various ferns and other plants that evolved before flowers graced the Earth. You’ll hear a few stories about how ferns were a part of other cultures for many generations and you’ll stop to look for newts along the creek. On the return via the Canyon Trail, you’ll stop for a snack at a sag pond and find yet another type of ancient plant before concluding the hike.

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.
