Fernandez Ranch Ramble

Fernandez Ranch

Join us for a saunter in fantastic Fernandez Ranch, one of the open space treasures preserved and managed by the John Muir Land Trust.

Our route includes the Whipsnake, Woodrat, Woodland, and Windmill Trails (and any other path we come across starting with the letter “W”). We’ll keep an eye out for the oddly-shaped flower of Dutchman’s Pipe, host plant for the beautiful Pipevine Swallowtail butterfly.
