Chaparral Foray
Saturday, April 29, 9 a.m.
Parrotts Ferry Bridge
Where would you want to hike on a spring morning? California’s distinctive Chaparral ecosystem is a great place to start! Hike through a “forest of shrubs” and learn about this fire and drought adapted plant community. Along the way, catch a glimpse of history by viewing what remains of the Duchess Gold Mine. This is a strenuous 3½ mile loop hike along a section of Table Mountain. Please bring plenty of water and sturdy hiking boots. We will meet at the parking lot on the Calaveras County side of the Parrotts Ferry Bridge at 10 a.m. Please call Ranger Mike at 209-536-9094 ext. 233 or email mmcgraw@usbr.gov if additional directions are needed or for any questions about the program.
