Nature Walk Redwood Regional Park

Sunday, April 8, 2018  11:00 am - 1:00pm


WHERE: Redwood Regional Park, Redwood Bowl Staging Area, Skyline Drive

Wheelchair accessible
: No


This 4.0 mile hike is NOT flat! But it is beautiful. We will start at the Redwood Bowl and head south on the Graham trail, plunging into the redwood forest that the park is famous for. At mile 1.7, the lowest point, the broad dirt trail opens into chaparral then oak, then pine, before reaching the west ridge.  The trail is well-maintained dirt the entire way.

Heavy rain a day ahead or on the day cancels.

Where to meet: We will meet at the Redwood Bowl Staging Area parking lot on Skyline Drive just north of the Roberts Recreation area.

What to bringBinoculars if you have them, good hiking shoes or boots for the trails, layered clothing for variable weather, water, windbreaker, snacks. Hiking poles are optional, but a good idea. 

How to get there:
Directions: Hwy 13 south to Joaquin Miller Road. Go left at the stop sign to get on Joaquin Miller Rd.  Follow Joaquin Miller Road and turn Left at the stop light onto Skyline Drive.  Drive about a mile until you have passed the Roberts Recreation Area entrance.  The Redwood Bowl Staging area parking lot is on the right (east) side, a few 100 yards south of (before) the entrance to Chabot Space & Science Center.
