March 6            Willow Creek Preserve                     Julia Graves
We will hike the Willow Creek Preserve.    The trail for this park starts just south of the town of Duncans Mills.  We will hike about a 5-6 mile loop.  The first stretch is the hardest, where we do a pretty steep climb up to the ridge at 1100′.  After this, it is a nice stroll along the ridge top with open views to the Pacific and to the Russian River.  The descent is through the woods.  Bring lunch and your hiking accessories. We should be done with the hike by 12 or 12:30.”

March 13th    Tolay Lake Regional Park            Debbie Potmesil
We will hike approximately 8 miles on relatively level trails.
The trails are pretty but exposed so bring lunch, hats and water. Poles are optional. Back by 3:00.

March 20       Shell Beach to Pomo Canyon                Neita Comings
One of the best hikes in Sonoma County, the Shell Beach to Pomo Canyon hike offers a little bit of everything, from towering redwoods to pounding surf, from ferny dells to ridge-top vistas. This gorgeous 6-mile hike offers wildflowers and stunning views of just about every habitat Sonoma County has to offer. Hike is moderate to strenuous. Maybe lunch at Korbel. Return by 3.
