The annual hike to Coreopsis Hill, in the Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes, is scheduled for March 25th. It will be a casual walk through the dunes to the top of Coreopsis Hill. This is a moderate hike, about 3 hours round-trip. Dress in layers, bring water and snacks, and have your "Dune Mother's Wildflower Guide" by Dr. Malcolm McLeod for the trip. Long pants and closed shoes are recommended as the habitat is coastal dune scrub and there is the possibility of poison oak and ticks in the natural dunes area – we'l watch for these and point them out so they can be avoided. Heavy rain cancels trip.
Directions to the starting area are here.
