Portola Valley

364 reviews

The northern part of the Spring Ridge Trail is a wide dirt fire road that is completely exposed with a moderate uphill climb. This trail takes you to the Windy Hill summit, where you get a panoramic view of the bay. Once you hit the Lost Trail, the path narrows and descends into mossy woods. This woodsy aesthetic continues along the Razorback Ridge Trail. Eagle Trail interweaves with the road. The Hamms Gulch Trail and the Spring Ridge Trail leading back to the parking are exposed, flat fire roads and not terribly scenic. There's some poison oak along the trail, but isn't too much of a problem if you stay within its bounds.
