Join docent Greg Azevedo and Huey-Shin Yuan to enjoy this wonderful Preserve so close to home. You’ll discover if the cudweed plant (sometimes called everlasting) smells like maple syrup to you. A lovely view awaits you along the Orchard Loop and Zinfandel Trails, and you can listen to the sound of Stevens Creek as you enjoy lunch at a Santa Clara County Park picnic area. Capable children can handle this moderately-paced hike with a couple of 200-foot climbs. A visit to Picchetti Winery is optional (on your own) at the hike’s end.

Where to Meet: 

Meet at the Preserve parking lot on Montebello Road. From the intersection of I-280 and Foothill Expressway, go 3.5 miles southwest (toward the mountains) on Foothill Boulevard/Stevens Canyon Road.  Turn right on Montebello Rd.  The Preserve is 0.5 miles up Montebello Rd. on the left.
