Approximate Total Miles

Your health matters! Enjoy the benefits of being out in nature on this moderately paced hike while learning how to improve your health and well-being. You'll explore interconnections within the natural world while deepening your own connection to nature. Docent naturalists Catherine Crawford-Swent and Marie Faust Evitt will use simple mindfulness and qi gong practices and discuss stress reduction. The first mindfulness exercise will be overlooking a valley view where the North American and Pacific tectonic plates meet.

Where to Meet

Meet at the preserve parking lot on Page Mill Road (across from Los Trancos Preserve), 7 miles west of I-280 or 1.5 miles east of Skyline Boulevard. Those traveling from I-280 on Page Mill Rd. should allow approximately 35 minutes travel time.
