About the event

The Lower Johnson trail to the Lawson Trail climb through oak,  chaparral and Sargent cypress woodlands, and wind west across prominent  ridge lines with scenic vistas of Sonoma Valley and the Napa hills.  While the historic Lawson family cabin and barn were lost in the fire,  the natural habitat is showing signs of regeneration.

We'll hike from the upper parking lot and head up the Lower Johnson  trail. We will be on the road going uphill for a short while.  Then it’s  a gradual climb as the trail switchbacks to the top and back. The  distance is 6 miles and the elevation change is 1150 feet. Weather  permitting, we’ll have a snack at the top before we head back down.  Bring water, snack/lunch and poles if you use them. Heavy rain or heavy smoke cancels.

Hike leaders Jody Galli (763-213-3076) and Colleen Keegan (925-487-4014)
