April 19               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.”

This is a panoramic hike at the Jenner Headlands. This is a strenuous hike. We will walk an 8.5 mile loop. The trail is hilly so bring poles, H2O and lunch. We’ll be back in HBG by 3:30.
