Olompali Orchids and other Plants

Leaders: Clint and Madeline Kellner

Please sign up for this field trip on Meetup

We will hike the loop trail (2.3 miles) at Olompali and look for the small delicate flowers of the summer-blooming rein orchid, Piperia transversa. We will also see the rare Napa false indigo shrub, California fescue grasslands, and some blue oaks.

Meet in the Olompali State Historic Park parking lot. Parking costs $8 ($7 for seniors). Local libraries lend parking passes.

Directions: The entrance to Olompali State Historic Park is at the end of Redwood Boulevard. From either north or south on Highway 101, take the Atherton/San Marin exit and proceed west and then turn right (north) onto Redwood Boulevard which is the first street west of the freeway.

Bring: Water, a snack/lunch (if desired). Dress in layers.
