We divide our hikes based on ecosystem type. Please read our descriptions below, and let us know which experience seems best for your group. Hikes average 2 hours, but can be adjusted to meet your group's needs. We strive to match experiences to guests, so the more we communicate before your hike, the more personalized your adventure!
Flowers vary seasonally.
If there is a species you really want to see, contact us early to check in about its status!
All hikes begin at the Samuels Ranch Sustainable main gate.
By appointment only.
