Coyote Lake Harvey Bear Ranch County Park
April 1 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Join Judy Fenerty and sweep Stella Yang for a moderately paced hike on the Mendoza, Mummy Mountain and Coyote Ridge trails in the Mendoza Ranch section of Coyote Lake-Harvey Bear Ranch County Park.
This 4-mile, 400+ foot elevation gain hike will take us through valley grasslands and up an oak-studded ridgeline with spectacular views of the south Santa Clara Valley, Coyote Lake and Palassou Ridge. This varied habitat supports a wide range of native plants including several stands of big-scale balsamroot, Balsamorhiza macrolepis var. macrolepis, a CNPS 1B.2 rare plant. If there’s time and interest, we can add an optional foray to check out the serpentine area on the Calaveras Trail.
