Wednesday, April 18, 2018 – 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Come celebrate California Native Plant Week at one of the best spring hot spots in Marin. The coastal bluffs along the outer reaches of the Pt. Reyes Peninsula host a fantastic display of spring wildflowers. We’ll take our time identifying the species that we find as we enjoy breathtaking views of the ocean.

This walk is for ages 15 and up. It’s an easy walk, fairly flat, about 1.5 miles.  We request that no pets (except service animals) attend.

Wear: Hiking clothes and shoes, hat, sunscreen.

Bring: Lunch, water, binoculars if you have them.

Free, No preregistration required

Rain may cancel. If questionable weather, call (415) 893-9527 after 8am on the morning of the event to hear a recorded message if cancelled.

Questions: Contact Shannon Burke at (415) 893-9520 or SBurke@marincounty.org.

Directions: Meet at the Chimney Rock Trailhead in Pt. Reyes National Seashore.   From Hwy 101 in Larkspur, take the exit for Sir Francis Drake Blvd. and go west 20.4 miles to Olema. Turn right onto Hwy 1 and go 2 miles. Turn left onto Sir Francis Drake Blvd and go 19 miles (allow about 30 minutes for this segment). Just after you pass the last dairy ranch (Ranch A) and a “V” in the road, go left; the parking lot is at the end.
