This hike covers about 7-8 miles of moderately hilly terrain in this scenic preserve which stays green all year. There are good views, plenty of trees, and a good variety of late-spring wildflowers. Bring water, lunch, sensible hiking footwear, and carpool money. Meet at carpool point #6.
Directions to LPSS carpool point #6 (Page Mill / 280 Park 'N Ride): Exit 280 onto Page Mill Road west (Los Altos Hills) in Palo Alto. The lot is next to the freeway. If looking for overflow parking, beware of the "No Parking" signs along Arastradero. Map: http://tinyurl.com/2tq9rk
