East Bay: Sunol Saunter

Sunday, December 15, 2019
9:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.
$5 per vehicle park entrance fee
Sunol Regional Wilderness Preserve
Sunol, Alameda County

Take a break from holiday shopping and enjoy the gift of the greenbelt. Our nature hike takes us up Indian Joe Creek to Cave Rocks, then down to Alameda Creek and Little Yosemite.

Along the way, we’ll view majestic Sycamore trees and hear how many of them owe their existence to an amazing event that happened back in 1862. We’ll also learn why geologists singĀ  “Old Man River” to explain why Alameda Creek follows the course that it does through the hills.
