Mother’s Day Walk: Women of Big Basin
Big Basin Redwoods State Park
Celebrate Mother’s Day in the park by honoring the spirited women who have lived in, worked in and fought for Big Basin throughout its history. Living history reenactments bring you back in time where you will meet pioneer homemaker Alice Maddock, Josephine McCrackin, the “Savior of the Redwoods” and Harriet “Petey” Weaver, the first female Ranger. You will stroll through the redwoods with Docent Doreen Devorah, a state park docent, actor, writer and producer, as she portrays these inspiring women on this half-mile, 2-hour guided walk. Meet at Park Headquarters. This walk is wheelchair and stroller accessible. The park is located 9 miles outside of Boulder Creek on Hwy 236 at 21600 Big Basin Way. Day-use parking fee is $10.
