The Place

Bear Creek Preserve
July 28, 2012
9:00 to 9:30 AM
We have to shuttle to the start point


Bear Creek Redwoods has no public parking. There is a locked gate at it's entrance, so we will shuttle there as a group.


Walking the Walk

We will hike about 5 miles on what were ranch roads. The hike includes seeing \ buildings that once comprised Alma College (1934 - 1969) and later Daybreak Institute. There are ponds, vineyards, an old packing shed and even a basketball Court. This is a beautiful preserve with much history.
