Edgewood’s serpentine grasslands are renowned throughout California for their lush wildflower carpets and rich biodiversity. You might see dozens of species of flowers on a single walk! Our free walks vary according to what’s in bloom—covering about 3 miles, at a moderate pace, with frequent stops.
In 2016, there are walks every Saturday and Sunday, from March 12 through June 5. Walks begin at 10:00 AM and end around 1:00 PM.
Where to meet
Walks start from the Bill and Jean Lane Education Center at the main entrance off of Edgewood Road (red star on map) every weekend throughout the season.
On Saturdays in April, walks also start from the Clarkia Trailhead on Cañada Road (blue dot on map below).
Parking is limited. Carpool when possible. Allow extra time to park. Use extreme caution if parking on the street. Or, consider using an alternative entrance to the park. Wherever you park, do not leave valuables in your vehicle.
What to bring
Bring water, a hat, sturdy shoes, sunscreen, and a snack if you wish. We don’t stop for lunch, but picnic tables are usually available after the walks in the picnic area.
Restrooms and water are available only at the Education Center and in the picnic area.
No reservations are needed unless you have a group of 10 or more. For group reservations, please email email@example.com.
