Hiking Tours
We have free hiking tours coming up on Christmas and New Year's Day. For links to details and registration, please visit our hiking tours page.
Trail tours are courtesy of Oakland Volunteer Park Patrol and sponsored by La Farine Bakery.
We successfully installed a new kiosk at lower Palos Colorados Trail
Thanks to our supporters, we were able to provide a new kiosk/message board at this popular trailhead. The content includes a "you are here" map, information about redwoods, and important emergency contacts. There is also a nice map holder.

Thank you to our sponsors!
