DESCRIPTION: This 3.0+ mile hike is NOT flat! But it is beautiful. (EASY, SOMEWHAT FLAT OPTION IS AVAILABLE*) We will start at the Redwood Bowl Staging Area and head south on the Graham trail, plunging into the redwood forest that the park is famous for. At mile 1.7, the lowest point, the broad dirt trail opens into chaparral then oak, then pine, before reaching the west ridge.  The trail is well-maintained dirt the entire way.  Heavy rain a day ahead or on the day cancels." 

*EASY, SOMEWHAT FLAT OPTION: We will start with the rest of the walkers, but will stay on the West Ridge Trail for 1 mile, then retrace our steps. ‘ ‘ ‘ ‘

WHERE TO MEET: We will meet at the Roberts Regional Park, Redwood Bowl Staging Area parking lot on Skyline Drive just north of the Roberts Recreation area. 

WHAT TO BRING: Binoculars if you have them, good hiking shoes or boots for the trails, layered clothing for variable weather, water, windbreaker, snacks. Hiking poles are optional, but a good idea.

Go left at the stop sign to get on Joaquin Miller Rd.  Follow Joaquin Miller Road and turn Left at the stop light onto Skyline Drive.  Drive about a mile until you have passed the Roberts Recreation Area entrance.
