Frog Pond Hike

— filed under:

The Frog Pond Trail winds through oak woodlands to a small pond which is said to have some very large frogs living in and around its shores. The hike gives you some fabulous views of Cortina Ridge, Glascock Mountain, and stunning Blue Oak woodlands. In May of 2016, paw prints from a black bear were seen near the pond. Dr Geoff Benn will again lead this hike for Tuleyome. He has previously led Tuleyome hikes along Road 53 and the Cowboy Camp Loop. Dr. Benn earned his B.S. in crop sciences from the University of Illinois and his Ph.D. in Plant Biology from UC Davis where his research focused on understanding the mechanisms of how plants initiate rapid responses to damage. Difficulty: Moderate Length: 5 miles (round trip) Terrain & Elevation: hills but not steep; ~600′ elevation gain Vegetation & Exposure: Oak grasslands for the majority of the hike with chaparral around the pond If you have questions, contact Nate Lillge at Note: All participants agree to abide by the terms and conditions of Tuleyome’s waiver of liability which can be seen and downloaded HERE. All participants also understand that photographs will be taken at the event. If you do not wish to be photographed, you must tell the photographer and avoid the cameras’ line of sight. A $5 donation to Tuleyome is requested, but is not required to participate in this event.
