Join docents Susan Bernhard and Noa Doitel on a moderately-paced, investigative hike in the mixed evergreen forest of this Preserve. You’ll hike along the Tafoni Trail and take a side trail to visit a tafoni sandstone formation. An offshoot from the Fir Trail will take you to a scenic overlook where you can admire spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and the western slopes of the Santa Cruz Mountains. From there, the hike will continue on the Resolution Trail where you’ll see evidence of a 1953 plane crash. You’ll hear the birds of the forest as you discuss the historical significance of this Preserve and some of its unique features. This hike includes approximately 400-600 feet of elevation change.
