Roy’s, So Much More Than Redwoods
An Open Space Odyssey Continues
By Michael Landram, Marin County Parks Volunteer
Earlier this month, I led a hike in Roy’s Redwoods Open Space Preserve for John Kelly’s “Greenboots” conservation awareness organization (http://www.greenbootmedia.com/). The redwoods live up to their reputation and the loop trail provides a wonderful overview of the diversity within this preserve made famous by its inclusion as a filming location for Star Wars films. But for me, the highlight of the day was the sweeping views to be had off the Dixon Fire Road. You can almost see west to the ocean and you can see the San Francisco Bay to the east! The view of the Preserve below set the redwoods in a proper landscape context, blended into a pastoral green landscape on a fine spring day.
