Buckeye Canyon- Hike & Weed!

  • San Bruno Mountain Ecological Reserve- Buckeye Canyon Quarry Road Brisbane, CA, 94005 United States (map)

Help remove invasive weeds like french broom, wild radish, and pincushion plant from the grasslands along the ridge of Buckeye Canyon.

These stewardship efforts will help protect habitat for the endangered mission blue and callippe silverspot butterflies and encourage an increased abundance of native wildflowers!

Directions:

1) From Bayshore Blvd, turn onto Valley Drive, the entrance to Crocker Industrial Park in Brisbane.

2) Drive down Valley Drive and turn left at the stoplight at the intersection of Valley Drive and South Hill Drive

3) Drive a very short distance on South Hill Drive; as the road begins to curve, immediately after a pedestrian crosswalk, you'll see a steep driveway on your left with potholes. Turn into that steep driveway and drive up. 

4) Immediately at the top of the driveway turn left and stop parallel to the concrete drainage ditch, next to the trailhead entrance sign to Buckeye Canyon. This is the location of the trail into Buckeye Canyon (https://goo.gl/maps/ ZYZLWqeDEpH2)
