Winter Treasures hike: Salamanders, Lichen, Mosses, and A Waterfall

Salamander hike

Sat, January 25, 2020, 10:00 am

Winter is newt breeding season! Join us as we walk through the sublime beauty of sage green lichen on burgundy Manzanita bark and moss bedecked oaks down to the 25-foot dramatic plunge of Sonoma Creek. Beginning at the Visitor Center, well follow Pony Gate Trails grassy slope, into mixed evergreen forest, along Canyon Trails shady riparian corridor (with the promise of Pacific Giant Salamanders) to the waterfall. The return takes us back uphill, across Adobe Canyon Road to the now familiar Pony Gate trail.
Approximately 2 miles with 450-foot elevation gain. $10/hiker, and parking fees apply.
Heavy rain or wind cancels and will be announced by 9AM the day of the hike.
