Big Basin Wildflower Hike

Sunday, April 7, 2024 28 Adar II 5784

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM


Come join TBE for a wildflower hike in Big Basin

Last fall, about fifteen stalwart TBE hikers enjoyed the fog (and, to be honest, a bit of drizzle) and counted more than 80 banana slugs in Big Basin State Park. Guided by TBE’s own Mimi Guiney, a former State Park Ranger who spent 20 years at Big Basin, we got to view the ongoing recovery from the 2020 CZU wildfire and heard that last spring there was a fantastic wildflower bloom.  Most of us want to go back and see if it will happen again this spring.

So, we will meet on Sunday, April 7, at 10:00 a.m. in the Big Basin parking lot.  Reservations for parking are not required, but are encouraged due to the limited amount of first-come, first-served parking available.  You can go to to reserve your parking space.The parking fee is $6 per vehicle plus a $2 reservation fee or $10 per vehicle without a reservation.

This will be a fairly easy, level hike of about 3-4 miles, up the N. Escape Rd. to  the old Founders Grove.  Be sure to bring water for the hike and wear a hat (shade can still be a bit sparse).  Think about bringing a snack or lunch and we can sit together afterwards in the amphitheater or picnic area.

RSVPs aren’t necessary, but please let Andrea Yanowitz  know if you’re planning to attend (so we don’t set out on the hike without you if you are a bit late) or if you have any questions.

This activity is being organized by TBE’s Membership/Engagement Committee.
