Take a walk with docent Kandis Scott around Alpine Pond to learn about the Santa Cruz Mountains environment. This short, easy, flat path offers a good start for those new to open space as well as those who might choose to continue on a longer hike on their own. This easy walk is well suited for children and those needing a less physically challenging outing.

Where to Meet: 

Park at the Russian Ridge Preserve parking lot on the northwest corner of the Skyline Boulevard (Highway 35) and Page Mill/Alpine Road intersection (across Skyline Blvd. on the right).  Walk to Alpine Pond at Skyline Ridge Preserve by going through the tunnel under Alpine Rd.  The Nature Center is a small gray building on the east shore of Alpine Pond.
