At this Park


271 acre Park managed by: Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District

Although this preserve is relatively small, it offers opportunities for leisurely hikes with lovely landscape views, wildflowers in the spring, shady woods in the summer, and earthquake education.

From open grasslands to shady bay and oak forests, this preserve offers hikes for all seasons. It’s also a great place to learn about earthquakes and geology. The San Andreas Fault runs right through the park, and there’s a 1.5-mile self-guided nature walk that highlights landscape features created by fault movement. Free, drop-in, docent-led walks explore various features of the park (check the park’s web page for walk schedule).
