Easy Hike at Conaway Ranch

This is an early morning walk to beat the heat, appropriate for people who find the typical Tuleyome hikes a bit too strenuous. Seniors and families are welcome. We will slow walk no more than 2 miles, out and back. The path is completely flat, but dirt and often uneven. It borders blackbird nesting habitat, green rice fields, mature oaks, wild areas, and permanent water.
