Bring the Family to Oakwood Valley for a Leisurely Loop Trail
Saturday, July 26, 2014 10:00 am - 12:30pm
Oakwood Valley Trail, a little known trail in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, offers shelter and sun. We will look for the rare mission blue butterfly which is on the federal endangered species list. The Mission Blue depends on a very specific host plant called the lupine which is found in Oakwood Valley.
Scan the sky and the hills for wildlife. Ravens and hawks often soar in the trees.. Coyotes and bobcats live in the thickets and hunt rabbits, mice and voles.
Getting there: Take Highway 101
Exit Stinson Beach
Make a left at the light, then another left at the next light (Tennessee Valley Road).
Trailhead is on your left less than half mile down Tennessee Valley Road.
Look for parking on the side of the road.
