TOMORROW – Friday, December 29th, 9AM – Free Family Hike: Join us for a family hike in nearby Davis, CA! The trail will be easy and kid-friendly. While it may be cold, so long as it’s not freezing or raining, we’ll be there!
We’ll explore part of the Putah Creek Riparian Reserve on our flat, <4 mile hike. Along the way we should see box elder, valley oak, arroyo and sandbar willow, California grape, California wild rose, Cottonwood, and whatever animals cross our path.
Park at the Old Davis Road Parking (directions: http://putahcreek.ucdavis.edu/about-the-reserve/directions.html) by 9AM. We’ll take a leisure walk/hike along the trail by the water out to the fire ring picnic grounds and back.
We’ve never done this trail, but based on my research, it should take us about 1 1/2 hours, depending on the pace of the kiddos. You can a more detailed map here: http://www.yolohiker.org/trails/maps/putah.pdf.
This trail does not appear to be handicap or stroller accessible, though it is flat. After this hike, I’ll share on the blog whether or not I think a stroller like a BOB could handle it.
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT WE ARE NOT TRAINED TRAIL GUIDES. TAKE EVERY PRECAUTION YOU WOULD NORMALLY TAKE WHEN EXPLORING A NEW HIKING TRAIL (including protection from the elements, first aid, water and snacks, watching your children, etc.). BY JOINING US, YOU CONSENT THAT WE ASSUME NO LIABILITY. We’re just a family that enjoys hiking, and hope you do, too!
