In this joint walk with El Cerrito Trail Trekkers we will walk through grasslands and oak forests in the city’s southern Hillside Natural Area before coming to the “missing link,” a privately owned parcel that is being acquired by the city to link together the northern and southern sections of the Natural Area. The views are great, the creeks sublime, some trails are rough, public stairways are steep. Learn about the public campaign to support this important open space acquisition. Two hours. Well-behaved dogs on leash permitted. Heavy rain cancels.
