Event Notes:

Redwood Regional Park Hike

Your choice of two hikes in EBRPD Redwood Regional Park
a Moderate 7.2 mile, 1200 ft. ele. or
a Challenging 9.0 mile, 1600 ft. ele.

Starting South from the Wayside Parking Lot, we'll take Stream, Bridle, Orchard, French, Fern, and West Ridge Trails to snack/rest at the Redwood Bowl. We then continue on West Ridge, and Tres Sendas Trails where our hikes diverge.

The longer hike turns left up French Trail to West Ridge then right around to descend on Stream Trail from the Skyline Gate.

Meanwhile the shorter hike continues down Tres Sendas to turn right on the Stream Trail. Both hikes return via the Stream Trail back to the Wayside Parking Lot.
