Dictionary Hill is the very heart of Spring Valley. This 1,059 foot mountain, and Bancroft Creek Canyon which lies along its northeastern slope, together comprise one of the largest remaining areas of undeveloped open space in our community. Dictionary Hill is a unique place. Long considered too steep for development, the area supports a wealth of native plants, birds wildflowers, small animals, and hill-topping butterflies. Trails lead from the canyon to the top of the mountain where hikers are greeted by 360 degree panoramic views.

Dictionary Hill Open Space Preserve is a moderate 2-mile hike with approximately 600ft of elevation gain and some steep inclines and declines. We will start the hike Saturday morning and will spend approximately 2 hours exploring the preserve including the summit of Dictionary Hill.

Recommended Gear:

Hiking boots/trail runners
Hat, sunscreen, and other sun protection
2 liters of water and trail snacks
Hiking poles
Other items listed in the 10 Essentials

This is a Sierra Club trip so we practice staying together on the trail, leave no trace, and all attendees will be required to sign a liability waiver.
