Join us at Lynch Canyon to hike a portion of the Bay Area Ridge Trail. On this hike you will challenge yourself getting up to the ridgeline and hiking a full 8+ miles but the 360 degree views from the ridgeline are worth the effort.
COST: The guided hike is free! Parking is $5, or an annual parking pass can be purchased; call 707-784-6765 for details. All proceeds help Solano County Parks keep this land open and safe.
WHAT TO BE PREPARED FOR: (1) Please arrive 15 minutes early to check-in and get ready. (2) Participants of all ages are welcome, but they must be prepared for the following: This hike will be approximately 8.3 miles. The route includes rugged, steep, and slippery hills that are full of sticky seeds and thorny plants. Expect rough, rocky, uneven ground. The trail will take us up to the ridgeline and we will descend a steep hill on our return. We will keep a moderate pace with plenty of breaks to catch our breath, discover the emerging plant life and search the vistas. (3) This is a working ranch where free-range cattle roam as they please. (4) There is no drinking water. (5) There is one bathroom, located in the parking lot. (6) In order to protect wildlife, cattle, and rare plants—and for your pet’s safety—dogs are not allowed. (7) Take only pictures, leave only footprints. (8) Maintain a safe distance from cattle and wildlife, and be aware that this is tick, mountain lion, and potentially rattlesnake country.
WHAT TO BRING: (1) A backpack with plenty of water and snacks. (2) Boots or sturdy closed-toe shoes with good grip. (3) Layered clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. (4) Protection from the elements (sun, wind, fog, rain). (5) Also recommended: Hiking sticks, bug repellent, binoculars, a camera.
