We will meet at the South Slough National Estuarine Reserve Interpretive Center parking lot at 10:00 AM. Lynn Jackson will lead the hike, and will take us on a series of trails through the reserve, including the North Creek Trail, the Middle Creek trail, the Hidden Creek Trail, the Tunnel Trail, and the Sloughside trail.
After the hike you will return to the Visitor Center for lunch or a snack.
Hikers wanting to explore more after lunch may want to complete the day with some hikes on the South Reserve Trails. (see the brochure below)
