The Place

Murietta Falls
Ohlone Wilderness
December 29, 2012
9:00 A.M.

Falls

Ohlone Wilderness Trail includes oak and bay woodlands, grassy uplands carpeted with springtime wildflowers, and wilderness ridges and peaks. The region is home to very few people, but it shelters abundant wildlife. Creatures not often seen near metropolitan areas, live in these lands, including the endangered bald eagle, mountain lions, bobcats, deer, and a herd of tule elk. The remote and beautiful wilderness areas are accessible only by the Ohlone Wilderness Trail. We will start this hike at 9:00 due to the length. If we are lucky, we will see the falls. They are notoriously unpredictable and can only be seen after a good rain. This whole hike offers some amazing views.
