The Place

At Huckleberry Botanic Regional Preserve the native plant community here is found nowhere else in the East Bay. It represents a relic plant association found only in certain areas along California's coast where ideal soil and climatic conditions exist.

Walking the Walk

Level: 3.5 - Miles: 6.5 - Elevation: 1000’

During the first part of the hike we will be in the Huckleberry Botanic Regional Preserve which begins under a canopy of trees and a variety of plant life. For most of the hike we will be in Robert Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve, which is more open and has more views of the distant mountain ranges.
