The Mt. Sutro Open Space Reserve is a 61 acre fragment of the more than 2000 acres of trees planted by Adolf Sutro in the late 19th century, and now cared for by the Sutro Stewards (https://www.sutrostewards.org/trail-map). We will be walking about 2 miles of unpaved trails through the forest and around the summit. There will be uphill climbing and the trails can be narrow and rocky in places. Mt. Sutro is a great place to focus on listening to locals and getting more intimate encounters with some of our regular birds.
Note: If you are driving, you can access 155 Johnstone form Clarendon Ave. only, Medical Center Way from Parnassus will be closed.
