We’ll discuss the Native American and pioneer uses of plants and rich history of Pacheco Pass. The hike is about 2 miles long and is classed as moderate. No advance reservations needed for groups under 10 people. (10 or more—please call ahead.)
Be sure to bring: waterproof hiking footwear, layered clothing and hat, sunscreen, and water.
The weather at Pacheco might be cold and you may want long pants and a jacket.
Optional: rain gear, binoculars, camera, and field guides. There is no drinking water at Pacheco SP.
Note: the only cost is the Park Day Use Fee of $10 per car. This same fee will allow you to visit any California State Park on the same day.
