I love Sanborn. I live very close, so we go hiking here nearly everyday. There are wonderful mountain bike trails, as well as walking trails for all levels of fitness. The redwood trees and the vast forest remind you of what is important in life.

Lovely maintained trails for hiking which are beautiful all year round. You can see the redwood trees that once covered the area in this preserve. I am not sure if you are allowed to camp there overnight. Great for picnics.
