SF Bay Area April Wildflower Hike at Russian Ridge Open Space Preserve

SF Bay Area April Wildflower Hike at Russian Ridge Open Space Preserve

Join fellow Obies for a hike at Russian Ridge. In previous years, the last weekend in April is the peak of the wildflowers, so hopefully, we'll get to see lots of colors. Elevation gain: 675 feet

On a clear day, we'll also be able to see the ocean, all the way to Marin County, and most of the Peninsula/East Bay. The plan is to descend first into the oak trees, then ascend back up to the Ridge Trail, and finally to Borel Hill for the best views.

Russian Ridge Open Space Preserve Parking Lot is on the northwest corner of Skyline Boulevard and Page Mill Road/Alpine Road. We'll meet in the parking lot, near the restroom.

Directions to the parking lot: For GPS, use Russian Ridge Open Space Preserve Parking Lot. Using Russian Ridge Open Space Preserve will yield a different and WRONG answer!!!

In general, there are multiple routes from 280 to get to Skyline Boulevard and Russian Ridge

From Page Mill Road, go through the intersection at CA-35 (Page Mill Road turns into Alpine Road) and the parking lot is within a few yards on the righ

From CA-35, at Page Mill Road/Alpine Road (watch for signs for Russian Ridge Open Space Preserve Parking) turn towards the ocean (from South, turn left; from North, turn right), and the parking lot is within a few yards on the right.

Parking can be tight so carpooling is suggested.

RAIN CANCELS. If there is inclement weather, please call or text trail leader Ed Milner '79 on his cell one hour ahead of the hike for the status. Cell phone reception is spotty, so last minute calls may go unanswered.

Don't forget layers, sunscreen, water, and snacks for the trail as well as binoculars/camera!

Trail Leader: Ed Milner '79, cell phone (415) 260-2458.
