Alder Spring – Redwood City

Russian Ridge Preserve – Redwood City.

This easy 1/2 hour jaunt from your car is well worth it.

Our latest bedrock mortar count on this one rock is 35. All shapes and sizes. On a nice little shelf above the creek which still has water in it in September.


Take the Charquin Trail down the hill


Turn right onto Alder Spring Trail. Go over the creek and maybe 50 yards further find a rarely used social trail off to the left.


Contemplate. Meditate. Consecrate.


Good seating still available.


The fires indicate important remaining Native American Indian sites
