Trail Maps

» Official Trail Map: Pretty good map showing various trails. Note the diamond shaped markers which show trails that have seasonal closures after heavy rains.

» Redwoodhikes Trail Map: Great map showing many parks like Purisima Creek, Huddart, Wunderlich, El Corte De Madera, Foothills, Hidden Villa and Rancho San Antonio. Trail maps for individual parks are available online for free. However, the RedwoodHikes map shows the big picture and is helpful for planning hikes that go through multiple parks.

Route
Walk along Redtail Loop Trail for a short loop in the northern section of Arastradero. For best experience, visit when the grass is lush green, in spring.
