Park in the Lower Parking Areas.
Please park in the area near the ArtiFactory. It is a short walk to the Garden, and trails into the land begin here.
Wear appropriate shoes.
The land at Atlan is steep in places. Be prepared for hills and moderately rough trails. It is a 1/2 mile hike from the Lower Parking Area to Forest Camp, and is uphill most of the way. The Nest at Cedar Grove is about 1 mile from the ArtiFactory.
Recognize Poison Oak:
The Oak Savanna on the land is a sensitive ecosystem guarded by Poison Oak, and this toxic plant (Toxicodendron Diversilobum) hides in other places in the forest. Please respect it and be careful. You can learn more about this plant and its dangers here.
No dogs or other pets are allowed in buildings at Atlan.
Because some people are very sensitive to poison oak, we ask that all pets stay outdoors. Atlan is also a forest ecosystem with sensitive plants and animals throughout. Please keep your pet on a leash at all times.
