Join Peninsula Open Space Trust for a beautiful photography hike at La Honda Creek Open Space Preserve, where you’ll experience the area’s sweeping views and gorgeous rolling grasslands! The preserve is over 6,100 acres, of which POST has contributed 5,200 acres.

You will be guided by POST ambassadors along the newly established Grasshopper Trail in La Honda Creek OSP. Along just over a mile, visitors to the trail traverse an amazing diversity of working ranchlands with grazing cattle, coastal grasslands, oak woodlands, and redwood forests with expansive viewpoints along the way. We’ll be photo-documenting this diversity and looking to capture images that truly engage the viewer’s attention with macro and landscape views along the trail and then sharing our favorite photos with others on this hike. Bring your camera and a tripod, as the whole group will make frequent stops to take pictures of the landscape and wildlife.

The hike is easy, at 2 miles round trip with little elevation gain. Closed-toed shoes with tread and plenty of water/snacks for yourself are recommended.

Please note that dogs are not allowed on this preserve due to active cattle grazing and that all minors must be accompanied by a parent/guardian for the entirety of the hike. 

This event is part of POST’s community event series. These events are open to the general public as well as POST donors, and we hope you will join us! We also curate a separate series of private events for our donor community. Learn more about how you can support POST here:
