Join the Open Space Authority for a hearty hike up to Sierra Vista Open Space Preserve from Alum Rock Park. This docent led hike will include the chance to see deer, turkeys, and other local wildlife along with amazing views! This trail is mostly exposed, which is great for sun but it can be breezy at times, so please dress appropriately. The tentative route is to hike up from the Penitencia Creek Parking lot, through Alum Rock Park to the North Rim Trail and up onto the Boccardo Trail to the vista point. It's about 1,500 feet of elevation gain and about a 7 mile round trip, strenuous hike. Please bring water and a light snack with you. We will meet in the Penitencia Creek parking lot next to the restrooms. No dogs please.
