WEEKEND HIKE: Fernandez Ranch - John Muir Land Trust
At dawn and dusk, Fernandez Ranch comes alive. Deer emerge from the woods and coyotes howl to one another. In the springtime, poppies, lupine and the threatened Mount Diablo sunflower — that only grows in Contra Costa County — blanket the ranch in vibrant color. The area is especially well suited for hiking, with paths that provide important connectors to the 550-mile Bay Area Ridge Trail and the 500-mile San Francisco Bay Trail. There is a staging area for horse trailers. Dogs can be off-leash as long as they are under control at all times.
