Wildflower season begins in late February through March, with peak blooms in April. Intensity of blooms can vary from year to year. The reserve’s waterfalls are generally best viewed in March.
Two tours are offered every Saturday in March, April, and early May, at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Each tour is limited to 25 participants. Registration is required in advance on the CDFW Website at www.dfg.ca.gov/lands/er/region2/northtable.html. These tours are popular so early registration is recommended. For important hiking requirements, additional information, and photos please visit our website. Dogs are not allowed on these tours, and must be leashed on self-guided visits. Biking is not allowed.
There are no trails on the reserve’s open grasslands which are dissected by steep ravines and canyons. New field guides on the reserve are available at the Avid Reader bookstores in Sacramento and Davis.
The tours are free, although registrants may make a donation online to the California Wildlife Foundation to support this program.
If you are unable to register online or need more information, please call CDFW Interpretive Services at 916-358-2869 or emailInterpretiveServices@wildlife.ca.gov.
