This preserve offers views of the entire Peninsula, all the way to the ocean from the summit. From its windswept peak to its meandering creeks, Windy Hill boasts a variety of habitats for you to explore.
As the site of POST’s first-ever land acquisition, it’s a special place for many of the organization’s staff — and after your first visit, you’ll likely feel the same.
Coyotes, raptors, songbirds and, in spring, wildflowers. And Mt. Diablo, Mt. Hamilton and Mt. Tamalpais are visible on clear days.
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 1,312-acre open space preserve is clearly visible from many spots along the Peninsula.
