The Place

Rancho Canada del Oro - Hidden Lake
September 6, 2014
10:00am

Please join us for a very rare hike to Hidden Lake, a part of the open space preserve still closed to the public, but available to employees on special occasions and home to the mysterious and endangered western pond turtle. This is a 6 mile hike with an elevation gain of about 700 feet. We will hike to the pond for some quiet time exploring the habitat of Western Pond Turtles and enjoy the company of our group as we eat lunch. Then you will hike on up to higher elevation for some amazing views. We will stay in the back country of Blair for an exploratory hike of those rolling hills covered in oak trees and golden grasses. If it gets really hot, you will switch routes and head into the trails of Rancho Canada del Oro where there will be more shade and amazing views as well. Meet in the parking lot at Rancho Canada del Oro Open Space Preserve at 10:00AM There is a restroom in the front lot. We will caravan over to the overflow lot where you will leave your cars and begin your hike.
