What will this winter bring? Rain and fungi? Dry weather and warm walking? Great ridgetop views or fog-shrouded hills? No matter the weather, a hike with Docent Naturalists Chris MacIntosh, Jumana Latif, and Paul Billig always uncovers interesting phenomena of the natural world. This moderately-paced loop hike will include Peters Creek and Long Ridge trails. Please bring a snack or lunch to enjoy along the trail.
Meet at Peters Creek Roadside Parking, 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).
