Looping Through Kennedy Grove
Join us for a pleasant hike through the park named after President John F. Kennedy.
We'll amble along the Sea Foam and Black Oak loop trails to see a variety of native shrubs and trees including (surprise, surprise) the Black Oak. What is the particular affinity this tree has with California? Why did Native Americans prize it? What is its strange connection to the Academy of Sciences? Learn this and more as we walk in hills that were preserved in one of Greenbelt Alliance's earliest open space conservation campaigns.
This is a moderate hike of four miles with about 500 feet in elevation change.
$5 per vehicle park entrance fee.
