The Sonoma Overlook Trail Stewards will host a hike and a picnic lunch from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 12, at Sonoma Raceway to help support rehabilitation of the Sonoma Overlook Trail. Participants can choose a three- or five-mile guided hike through the hills and grasslands of the raceway's extensive open space to the west of the main facility.

Hikes will be guided by docents and Steve Page, Sonoma Raceway's president and general manager. This property, offering 360-degree views and bayland vistas, is not usually accessible to the public.

The walk is easy and suitable for all ages and it's also an opportunity to see the "woolly weeders" and their spring lambs in action.

Cost is $50 a person, non-refundable and tax-deductible.

The cost covers docent-led hikes, a picnic lunch catered by Levy Restaurants, wines and non-alcoholic beverages.

Proceeds support the Sonoma Overlook Trail Maintenance, Restoration, Recreation and Education Programs run by the Sonoma Overlook Trail Stewards, an all-volunteer group that monitors and performs maintenance on the Overlook Trail.
