We are sorry to say that tomorrow’s hike on Saturday at Wavecrest Open Space has been canceled due to predictions of heavy rain throughout the day and partially flooded trails.
We apologize for this inconvenience and hope that we’ll be able to reschedule this hike. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
There is an approximate two-mile trail that is part of the California Coastal Trail. This serene space is surrounded by POST-protected agricultural land and open space. Many people enjoy this scenic hike because of the great bird watching opportunities. There is also a chance to head down to the beach for a quiet place to relax.
On this walk, closed toed shoes are required. We hope to catch an array of colors of the sunset, but in case it gets dark quickly, we suggest bringing a flashlight. Minors are welcome to attend as long as they are accompanied by a parent or guardian.
This event is part of POST’s community event series. These events are open to the general public as well as POST donors, and we hope you will join us! We also curate a separate series of private events for our donor community. Learn more about how you can support POST here: openspacetrust.org/support
Wavecrest Open Space Reserve was protected in January of 2008. The POST protected reserve is roughly 254-acres large and is managed by the Coastside Land Trust. While visiting, you may catch glimpses of migrating whales, harbor seals, pelicans, hawks, and springtime wildflowers. The 26 acres protected by POST contain rare coastal prairie habitat for sensitive species, including the endangered red-legged tree frog.
The Gordon and Betty Moore foundation played a large role in providing funding. One of the long-term visions of the trusts is to create a connected network of public trails that will span 1,200 miles up and down the California coast.
Peninsula Open Space Trust protects open space on the Peninsula and in the South Bay for the benefit of all. Since 1977, POST has preserved over 76,000 acres in San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Santa Cruz Counties.
