October 24th – This hike has been canceled due to rain prediction. Thanks for understanding, and watch our events page for future opportunities!

Experience the sweeping views and gorgeous rolling grasslands of Lower La Honda Creek Open Space Preserve. This moderately strenuous 6-mile hike takes you through POST-protected land, featuring a still-active cattle operation! The meandering trail provides nice views of the surrounding ridgelines and in January, after some rain, the hills will be beautiful and green. The preserve is over 6,100 acres, of which POST has contributed 5,200 acres.

The trail has several steep climbs – we suggest bringing hiking poles, shoes with tread, and plenty of water in a reusable water bottle!

RSVP below! Information will be sent to you via e-mail. We hope to see you there!


Trail History

La Honda Creek Open Space Preserve was established in 1984 with the purchase of a 255-acre property. Following many additional land acquisitions, the Preserve now encompasses over 6,100 acres. More than half of the acreage was purchased by Peninsula Open Trust, then transferred to Midpen. Find out more here at MidPen’s site!
