Join us for a history hike in the Olompali State Park. At various times, Olompali has been home to the Coast Miwok, landed gentry, Catholic priests, the Grateful Dead, and even a hippie commune.

Our route features stunning views over the Petaluma River basin, oak woodlands, historic ranch buildings, and a visit to a reconstructed Miwok village. We’ll also keep an eye out for early spring wildflowers.
