Grasslands and Forest Loop Walk
Start your 3 1/2 mile walk in the Monterey pine and California live oak forest before moving onto the Ranch grasslands with sweeping ocean views.

We will then re-enter the forest to end your walk with seasonal wildflowers, mushrooms, and monarchs. We’ll talk about the Ranch flora and fauna, human history, our trail system, and how you can, through stewardship, participate in keeping your Fiscalini Ranch Preserve native and natural.

Our walk will have some elevation gains but is comfortable for most. Sturdy shoes and long pants to protect from poison oak are important. Bring water, camera, and binoculars if you have them. Children are welcome with adult supervision.\
FFRP docent walks are free of charge and are open to the public.
