COBB, Calif. – Take a hike Saturday, Dec. 8, at 9 a.m. on the interpretive trail at Boggs Mountain State Forest.
The 1.3-mile hike will be on moderate terrain and will be led by Darlene Hecomovich.
Although this hike will cover only a postage-size piece of the majestic 3,500-acre forest, it will provide an opportunity to get some exercise while you enjoy the outdoors and the wonders of nature.
The interpretive trail has more than 50 signs identifying the plants, shrubs, trees, mosses and wildflowers encountered on the path.
The hikers will be looking at everything from the tiny kingdom of mosses, lichens and liverworts to a stately Douglas Fir that is 6 feet in diameter, 190 feet tall and has an estimated age of over 300 years.
Wear sturdy shoes, dress appropriately for weather conditions, and bring water and enthusiasm.
Meet at the parking lot kiosk promptly at 9 a.m.
The forest entrance is located off Highway 175 just 1.5 miles north of Cobb Village. Turn at the blue State Fire Station/Boggs Mountain Forest sign.
