      South Bay: Roving the Rancho

      So close to Silicon Valley and yet so pristine, Rancho Cañada Del Oro is a greenbelt gem. Get to know the "canyon of gold" on this hike along the rolling foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Along with spectacular views of the Santa Clara Valley and Diablo Range, we'll enjoy oak woodland, sage-chaparral scrub, and creekside habitats along with outcroppings of California's state rock, serpentinite.  TOTAL DISTANCEThis is a moderate 5-1/2 mile hike with about 600 feet in elevation gain. LEADERPatti Kenyon WEATHER POLICYRain cancels COSTFree; RSVP required WHERE TO MEETWe'll meet at the parking area at the preserve entrance. There is also an overflow lot a bit down the road.
