Follow the journey of a drop of rain through our watershed, from the ridgeline, down hills, through valleys and into creek channels that feed the Russian River. Explore the water cycle with Dr. Sam Sandoval Solis and Dr. Ted Grantham, who will help us understand the challenges facing our watersheds and encourage us to see how our activities on the land determine the conditions of our rivers and streams. This is a strenuous hike with some steep sections off trails and uneven surfaces along streams. Although the hike is just over 2 miles, the incline and rough ground make this hike appropriate for hikers who are well accustomed to steep terrain.
