Head out with Docent Naturalists Linda Wegner and Nick Yatsko for an aerobic, vigorously-paced hike with 700 feet of elevation gain. You’ll follow the Rogue to Upper Rogue to High Meadow Loop trails, encompassing both fire roads and single-track paths including a one-mile-long grade with wonderful views. If it has recently rained, you should be able to view the waterfall beyond the pond.
Meet near the restroom at the bottom of the hill in the preserve parking lot farthest to the right. From I-280, take Foothill Boulevard south and turn right almost immediately onto Cristo Rey Drive. Continue about 1 mile, veer right around the traffic circle, and turn left into the park. After entering the preserve, turn right and drive approximately 0.3 miles to Lot 6.
