California Holly and Other Winter Flora of Buck Gully - Oasis Shuttle Service Route

The California holly is special this time of year! We will explore the holly and other neighboring flora thriving in Buck Gully during the cooler, wetter wintertime. This is a slow paced hike on a fairly flat trail which traverses the lower half of Buck Gully.  We will be shuttled to Canyon Watch Park from the Oasis Senior Center and hike from the park back to the Oasis center. The route will be mostly downhill, with a few short, steep sections. Suggested are sturdy shoes, sunscreen, water and binoculars if you have them. The OASIS Shuttle Service will transport participants to the Canyon Watch Park where they will hike from the park back to the center.

PLEASE NOTE: Poison oak grows in abundance throughout the entire Buck Gully Reserve trail system. If you are susceptible to poison oak, please plan accordingly.
