Canyoneers, in conjunction with EDI, have special permission to hike this 5,600-acre California Fish and Wildlife ecological reserve. Here we'll find sage scrub and riparian environments, and efforts to convert non-native grasslands back into native habitat. The ruins of the historic cement-making kiln will also be visited with a local geologist on hand tell why this monumental endeavor failed.
