Event Details

Walk the Wallace Stegner Pathway and experience his voice in the wilderness as a docent reads aloud his most moving and inspirational writings on conservation. An easy to moderate hike through Los Altos Hills.

Former Los Altos Hills Mayor Ginger Summit once commented that Wallace Stegner successfully maintained a level of anonymity. “We wanted to name a path for him, and he said no.” The path, now part of the Los Altos Hills Pathway System, was created anyway, without a name. It begins on Three Forks Lane with a narrow trail alongside Matadero Creek near the former Stegner property. Mary Stegner later confided that her husband came to enjoy walking on the path. In 2010 that trail was named the Wallace Stegner Pathway, marked by wooden signs at both ends.
