Connect the Live Oak Nature trail to the Quail Loop trail for this great overview of the Juniper Sierra Trail Network. Nestled behind the cities of Millbrae and San Bruno, Junipero Serra Park affords a spectacular panorama of the Bay Area with unequaled views to San Bruno Mountain, San Francisco Airport, San Francisco Bay and Mount Diablo. Visitors are drawn to the Oak Foothill plant community, spring wildflowers, El Zanjon Creek, and the peaceful retreat the area affords from surrounding urban development.

Pretty good easy beginner trail. You can hear I-280 from most points in this park but other than that it's a quickly easy hike.

Good trail to get a brief nature fix while staying at a local hotel. I entered through the park by the veterans recreation building, past a picnic area then found the trailhead. Many Spurs and choices. I went to the top for the view of the airplanes taking off and landing. A lot of traffic notice and airplane notice so not complete nature but I got my fix for the day,

There are some nice short trails up here next to picnic areas (benches, grills, water fountains, bathrooms) and playgrounds - I saw two with playground equipment even! A popular spot for birthday parties. Extremely convenient for small children. My toddler had no problem on a few of the trails that overlook the airport. You can't hear the airport really, but you can hear cars on 280 (in most places, not all). It's not terrible though you will easily ignore it.
