13 San Mateo County Parks Opening TODAY, May 4th!


I don't know about you, but having simple hiking trails closed due to shelter-in-place has been so hard for me! As a San Mateo resident, it bummed me out that I wasn't able to explore parks that I'm used to going to on the weekends....Wunderlich, Pescadero Creek, Crystal Springs, etc. Well, the GOOD news is that as of today, 13 of them are opening back up again! Of course- there will be social distancing rules- but knowing the parking lots are open and we can explore these beautiful trails again- safely- makes me happy. Here are the trails that are now open:

  • Crystal Springs Regional Trail
  • Edgewood Park
  • Huddart Park
  • Junipero Serra Park
  • Memorial Park
  • Mirada Surf West
  • Pescadero Creek Park
  • Pillar Point Bluff
  • Quarry Park
  • Ralston Bike Trail
  • Sam McDonald Park
  • san /bruno Mountain Park
  • San Pedro Valley Park
  • Wunderlich Park

NOTE: Some of these parks will have their parking lots open, and some won't. Click HERE for more details on each park, and also, download the "All Trails" app- it's so helpful and has great pictures and resources too. See you on the trails!
