We enter the Preserve from the east and walk along Cieneguitas Creek’s beautiful restoration area, then hike uphill to the top of the Preserve.  We’ll observe how geology controls some sharp changes in topography and vegetation, and enjoy some stunning views of our coast and mountain front. Total distance about 3 miles, mostly easy but steeper at top. 

Bring hat, boots or sturdy shoes with good treads, water, camera, binoculars, snack, sun protection, and a jacket in case of fog or wind. A hiking pole is advised for steeper areas.
