June 3, 2020 - Wednesday - Today we decided to check out another trail maintained by the Redlands Conservancy, the Saha'tapa Loop.  The name was given by the Serrano Indians for this area of the San Timoteo Canyon.  Many Native American villages occupied this area in the early 1900s and they provided sustenance to travelers using the Cocomaricopa Trail in the canyon.  In the 1950s a rancher named Otis Hudson purchased 200 acres here and erected the ranch house that still stands.  The land is now owned by both the city of Redlands and Riverside County.

This specific area is called Live Oak Canyon. The name live oak comes from the fact that evergreen oaks remain green and "live" throughout winter, when other oaks are dormant and leafless.

The old ranch house and outbuildings are currently being restored by the Redlands Conservancy.  This 12 acre ranch will soon become Redlands Conservancy’s outdoor education center and trail head for more than 20 miles of trails north and south of the ranch.
