Meet at the roadside pullout area on the west side of Skyline Boulevard, 3.6 miles north of Highway 9 or 3.3 miles south of Page Mill Road. If you are coming from the north on Skyline Blvd., the pullout is just past Portola Heights Road on the right. From the south, the pullout is near the Palo Alto city limits sign on the right. There is additional parking across Skyline Blvd. at the Grizzly Flat trailhead (Santa Clara County Park).
You’ll hike out on Peter’s Creek Trail and look for signs of the season as you pass an old apple orchard and a pond. This 2.5-mile, moderately-paced hike with docents Susan Bernhard and Chris MacIntosh will take in views from the coastal hills. You’ll observe for raptors from the Wallace Stegner memorial bench where you’ll stop for lunch. Bring your curiosity as you look for fog-supported native flowering plants and fungi, and evidence of the birds and animals that live here. Capable, attentive children, age 10 years or older are welcome.
