Two self-guided, multimedia nature tours, similar to audio tours found in museums are available for hikes at Skyline Ridge Open Space Preserve:

  • Alpine Pond Tour - A short family-focused walk around Alpine Pond adjacent to the Daniels Nature Center
  • Skyline Ridge Habitat Tour - A longer, almost 2-mile hike, offered for a general audience, that guides visitors through four different habitat types.

In limited formats, the Alpine Pond Nature Tour is also available in Spanish and Chinese (Mandarin)!

The starting point for all Nature Tours is the Daniels Nature Center.
Open Saturdays & Sundays 12:00pm - 5:00pm

The District's audio-based nature tours are designed to involve new audiences, including families, and to enrich visitor experiences at Skyline Ridge Preserve by delivering fun and engaging content using mobile devices and technologies. The multimedia tours enhance visitor awareness and understanding about not only the flora and fauna of varied habitats, but also about the effect of human history on the landscape.
