Arroyo Hondo Preserve Guided Tours
Explore the Natural Wonders of the Gaviota Coast at Arroyo Hondo Preserve
Join knowledgeable docents for a guided tour of our beautiful preserve. Learn about chaparral, coastal sage scrub, oak woodland, stream-side, and grassland habitats. Walk in the shade of giant sycamores, live oaks, and bays as you learn about local fauna, flora, and history.
If you prefer, you may hike on your own, without a docent guide. Be sure to wear strong shoes and bring a hat, water, and sunscreen.
Arroyo Hondo has surprises at all times of year: spring wildflowers, cool shade in summer, trees with lovely colors in autumn … and we even have some flowers in winter.
Bring your picnic lunch to enjoy at a table near the creek after your tour.
Tours are free, but we do appreciate donations to help with upkeep of the preserve.
