This popular hike provides beautiful views of the entire Peninsula from the summit of Windy Hill.
Look out for coyotes, raptors, songbirds and, in spring, wildflowers. Mt. Diablo, Mt. Hamilton and Mt. Tamalpais are visible on clear days. There are picnic tables next to Spring Ridge parking area off Skyline Blvd.
Windy Hill was the first land protection project completed by POST back in 1981. Today, it’s an ideal spot for flying kites, walking dogs, mountain biking and horseback riding. The grassy ridge top of this popular 1,335-acre open space preserve is clearly visible from many spots along the Peninsula.
