On this walk along the Zinfandel Trail, docents Debbie Mytels and Mary Jo Colton will identify clues that open the door to understanding more about history and natural processes at work in this beautiful Preserve. Why are these trees the same distance apart? Why is the air suddenly cooler here? You’ll see clues to human history and the behavior of water and rocks along this leisurely-paced hike through sun and shade. A visit to Picchetti Winery for tasting is optional (on your own) at the hike’s end.
