You don’t want to miss this opportunity to enjoy nature at it’s finest on this legacy landscape. Meet at Ted C. Wills Community Center at 8:30AM. We'll caravan to the Preserve to meet our docents at 10AM and arrive back to Ted C. Wills at 2:15PM. The hike itself will take three hours. Carpools available (limited spaces) to the preserve or you can take your own vehicle. Be sure to bring sunglasses, water, comfortable shoes, and layered clothing. Light lunch provided. Directions to the Ruth McKenzie Table Mountain Preserve From Fresno, take Freeway 41 north. Exit at Friant Road and turn right at the bottom of the off-ramp. Take Friant Road to the town of Friant. You will see Friant Dam ahead of you. Follow Friant Road uphill, past the dam. At this point, Friant Road bends to the right and changes its name to Millerton Road. Stay on Millerton Road for 5 or 6 miles until you come to a stop sign at Auberry Road. At Auberry Road you will see a gas station on your left. Using the gas station as your benchmark, note your mileage and turn left. Go slightly over 3 miles on Auberry Road. You will see some table mountain formations ahead. When you reach the 3 mile mark, slow down and turn left onto the preserve property. The entrance to the preserve is on the left, where you will see a large corral and a gate. Drive in at the gate and park in the parking area.
