Tunneling through the cedar grove that kicks off this footpath, no one could predict the dramatic river ridge or expansive wildflower meadows lying in wait.
There are at least 4 points of access to this preserve; I recommend starting at the parking lot on Montgomery Avenue and making the full 1-2 hour loop. For the longest route, just keep tending left. Eventually, you’ll emerge onto Montgomery Ave. at a point not too far from where you parked.
There’s also an even, paved bike path that makes a smaller, inner loop.
AS A WINE….
A wonderful Merlot that is earthy, luscious and structured and unfolds in highly entertaining and varied phases.
