East Bay: Roving Oakland’s Redwoods
Put some “spring” in your step with a shady hike through Oakland’s redwood forest.
Oakland is named for the coast live oak, but it was once home to some of the world’s largest redwoods. We’ll walk beneath the “youthful” decedents of those ancient giants and share some forest folklore and fascinating facts about California’s state tree. We might even kiss a banana slug.

We’ll assemble near the Canyon Meadow Staging Area at the end of the paved road up from Redwood Gate.
Bring water, snacks, dress in layers, and wear good hiking shoes. Bring poles if you normally use them. If you have any questions about this outing, email Ken Lavin or phone him at 415-543-6771 x321.
