The Place &
Walking the Walk

On our way down we will enter the cool shaded trails with aromas from the California Bay and Live Oaks. When the trails are dry the footprints of turkeys, wild pigs and coyotes are abundant. After a short 300 to 350 ft climb up Peters Creek Trail we will reach Long Ridge, hence the name, a gorgeous long flat walk with opportunities for great viewgasms. Ferns and moss covered rocks line the trail back down to the trailhead. As most hikers will agree a good hike ends downhill as with this one.


Getting There

From Hwy 85 take the Saratoga Ave. exit toward downtown Saratoga. Downtown Saratoga will be our last chances for gas, coffee or snacks. Continue up the mountain until a four way stop and turn right onto Hwy 35. Go about 3 miles until you see a green Palo Alto City Limit sign on the right. The parking lot is immediately after the sign on the right. In front of the parking lot is a park hours sign along with an information signboard.
