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

Parking: In Wunderlich Park, access to Bay Area Ridge Trail (also called Skyline Trail) and Alambique Trail is provided by the western gated entrance on CA-35 (Skyline Blvd). There is little parking outside this entrance. See Trail Map for Wunderlich. However, 0.2 miles north of this entrance, there is a parking lot for El Corte de Madera Creek Open Space Preserve. A trail inside El Corte de Madera parallels CA-35 and leads to the gated western entrance of Wunderlich.

Trailhead: Gated entrance for El Corte de Madera called "CM03" in trail map.

Route in brief: Follow Gordon Mill Trail going towards Wunderlich Park for 0.3 miles (see trail map) to emerge again on CA-35. Cross over to enter Wunderlich Park and follow Skyline Trail (also called Bay Area Ridge Trail) all the way to Kings Mountain Road in Woodside.

Notes: Skyline Trail continues beyond Kings Canyon Road into Huddart Park for another 0.4 miles to reach a parking lot for Purisima Creek Redwoods, which has ample parking.
