LandPaths- Lafferty Ranch and its Geological Past

November 26 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

“Join LandPaths docents Melissa Hatheway and Hugh Stevenson for a beautiful family friendly geological hike at Lafferty Ranch! Helping to lead the hike will be local geologist Nicole Myers. Nicole teaches Earth Sciences at Sonoma State University and College of Marin. She strives to help others appreciate planet Earth. When she joined a hike with us last year we learned so much! She is a passionate teacher and well versed in local geology. Learn about our little patch of earth as well as enjoying a gorgeous hike! This 270-acre property is the only publicly-owned land on the west side of Sonoma Mountain. Under contract with the City of Petaluma, Landpaths has been leading hikes on the land to introduce groups to its history and natural features since the summer of 2022.  The hiking terrain ranges from broad, gentle meadows to steep challenging hillsides. We’ll enjoy spectacular views of the Petaluma Valley, stretching southwards to Mt. Tamalpais and Mt. Diablo, all the way to San Francisco.  The trail passes through groves of venerable oak and bay trees along the Adobe Creek, with a total elevation gain of 500’. We’ll hike above the creek up to a vista point at the mid-point meadow, where we will stop to enjoy the panoramic views and snacks before returning to our cars. This will be a relatively short hike, but the path is narrow and in places rocky and overgrown. Come prepared with water, snacks, long pants, hiking boots or good shoes, and sun protection. Bring a small blanket if you’d like to sit when we take our break at the top under the big oak.  ”
