University students and community docents will be your guide. Our guides are trained in natural history of the mountain and interpretation of preserve programs. They will lead you on one of many trails into this 450-acre preserve on the shoulder of Sonoma Mountain. Hike options include visits to the headwaters of Copeland Creek and spectacular vistas of the Santa Rosa Valley and Valley of the Moon.
You will be asked to sign a waiver upon your arrival. All children and minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian. No pets or smoking permitted. The preserves are open to persons of all ages and affiliations engaged in research and education. Reservations are required.

Celebrate spring with a hike through the hills and valleys of the famed Marin Headlands!
We’ll be right in the middle of wildflower season, so we’ll get to see the last of the early-blooming species, the first of the late-blooming species, and all things flowery in between. From the top of Hill 88, we’ll take in some of the best views in the Bay Area—of San Francisco, Mount Tamalpais, Tennessee Valley, the Farallon Islands (if Karl the Fog takes the day off), and the San Bruno and Montara Mountains south of San Francisco.
