Join docents Judy Sencenbaugh and Marie-Anne Neimat on a moderately-paced hike to explore Monte Bello (Italian for “beautiful mountain”) before the summer heat returns. Learn about the Preserve’s early inhabitants and enjoy awe-inspiring views in an area of abundant wildlife and ecological diversity. You’ll descend along the Stevens Creek Nature Trail through mixed evergreen forests and riparian areas, and then ascend to Black Mountain via Canyon, scenic Bella Vista, and Old Ranch Trails to a shady location for lunch with a beautiful view. On your return route you’ll stop by a sag pond and learn about its formation.
