Event Details
Join POST for a moderate 6-mile hike through the open, rolling grasslands of Lower La Honda Creek Open Space Preserve. Managed by MidPen, this preserve features forests and redwoods to the North and hilly grassland to the South. It's a great spot to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Mix with other nature lovers and hikers, learn about the Land from a great docent, and maybe we'll even walk by some grazing cattle!

Help us protect open space on the Peninsula and in the South Bay for the benefit of all.
