I would like to invite everyone to join a Park Ranger for a leisurely hike on the Smittle Creek Trail along the western shoreline of Lake Berryessa, about an hour and a half west of Sacramento. Enjoy spring wildflowers and get some fresh air and exercise while learning about the natural and human history of the area on an easy-to-moderate 2.6 mile, one-way guided hike. The trail travels through a shaded Blue Oak woodland, affording hikers scenic views and peaceful surroundings. Meet at the south end of the Smittle Creek Day Use Area parking lot, off of Berryessa-Knoxville Road. Vehicles can be shuttled to the trail end point at Coyote Knolls within the Oak Shores Day Use Area. Hikers may stay with the ranger for the entire 4-hour hike or leave early if they choose. Bring a lunch to enjoy on the lake. For details and directions, please contact Mike McGraw at[masked], ext. 112 or [masked].
