Fall Nature Hike from Hunting Hollow

November 19, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join Coe volunteers on this moderate/easy 4-mile hike with about 600 ft elevation gain.

Planned route: We’ll walk past some huge old sycamores, then head up the Jim Donnelly trail through a blue oak forest dripping with lace lichen. Our goal is a picnic bench overlooking the valley. After enjoying views to the Quien Sabe Range, we’ll hike back down to the hollow via the pretty East Connector trail. There will be a stop to check out an old windmill and homestead area. Return on the Hunting Hollow road, pausing at six lovely creek crossings (mostly dry this time of year).

What to bring: Hat, water, sunscreen, snacks/lunch, rain jacket. Optional: hiking poles.

Heavy Rain Cancels so check the night before.

Cautions: The Meetup trip leaders and guides are volunteers willing to share their experience in a social hiking environment. Hiking risks include ticks, poison oak, and uneven trail surfaces. Each participant is responsible for evaluating their own hiking skills and stamina to determine if this hike is suitable for them to participate.
