Join Docent Naturalists Stephen Buckhout and Stella Yang for a short out-and-back hike on Old Page Mill Trail to explore a section of the former road to Page's Mill. You'll travel at a slow to moderate pace through mixed evergreen forest and chaparral with sandstone rock outcrops. If there has been winter rain, you may see some small waterfalls. You should anticipate an elevation gain of 500 feet on the return leg.

Where to Meet

For this activity at Skyline Ridge Preserve, meet at the Russian Ridge Preserve parking lot on the northwest corner of the Skyline Boulevard (Highway 35) and Page Mill/Alpine Road intersection (across Skyline Blvd. on the right). Those traveling from I-280 on Page Mill Rd. should allow approximately 40 minutes travel time.
