The serpentine grasslands of Edgewood Park and Natural Preserve are famous for their magnificent displays of wildflowers each spring. The park's location, within easy access to Interstate 280 and Edgewood Road, makes this beautiful display readily accessible to the population centers of the San Francisco Peninsula. The Park's 467 acres of woodlands and grasslands afford wonderful hiking and sightseeing opportunities. What Edgewood Park lacks in size, it makes up for in wildflower diversity,
Great trail! I arrived slightly after 3pm and followed a group in front of me. I followed the walk path and went slightly off course onto sunset trail and the walk there was beautiful.. There is a scenic point on the top of old oaks trail.
There are people and runners on the trail but it is moderately crowded.. Overall an enjoyable experience and will recommend.
Note: no dogs allowed
Michele M. on Pulgas Ridge Open Space Preserve
This is my go to place if I need to get a quick hike in but I am short on time. As a previous reviewer stated, this is not the Pulgas Water Temple but is the Pulgas Open Space Preserve. I would place this a little harder than easy. While I think beginner hikers will do just fine they should keep in mind that it is not flat. Dogs are allowed and there is a bathroom along with trail maps at the trail head. Bring plenty of water because it gets really hot even though there is a lot of shade.
Pretty moderate with some switchbacks and rolling hills as you ascend and descend the hill. Great trail if you want to get out and work up a sweat without too much intensity. We passed many joggers and from experience I would say it's a good trail for training. We took Edgewood to Serpentine to Sylvan and back to the Edgewood main parking lot for a loop that was just under 4 miles.
