Wunderlich County Park Loop
3-star hike | 5.5 mile loop | Medium | San Mateo County, Northern California -
The shaded trails that criss-cross Wunderlich County Park pass from mixed woodland to chaparral scrub, and from grassy meadow to second-growth redwood groves. Our route takes in all these sights and more, making for a pleasant if not spectacular five-and-a-half mile circuit.
Begin at the trailhead by the stables originally designed for coffee baron James A Folger, a highly decorative equestrian building still in use today. Our circuit of the park takes a counter-clockwise route, beginning with woodland switchbacks up Bear Gulch Trail before breaking out onto the meadowlands located at the highest parts of the park, offering views over the San Francisco Peninsula.
Wunderlich County Park is free, and you'll find it just off interstate 280 by the charming city of Woodside.
