Walking Tour #2: Vernal Pool Complex
Directions: This location is across the dirt road from the sea of Frying Pan Poppies. Take highway 50 to Zinfandel Drive. Head south on Zinfandel until it turns into a dirt road (past the Douglas intersection, Mather golf course and Woodring drive). Walk or drive about 300 meters down the dirt road until you reach a green kiosk on the western side (be cautious, the road is rather bumpy). Park safely along the dirt road. Follow the foot trail from the kiosk out into the field. As you walk along the path, on your left you will see a few vernal pools.
