The Arastradero Preserve offers another great hike in the foothill. It was established many years ago to prevent the land from being developed, and now we can thank the foresight of our city leaders at the time to have established a park that will preserve the natural beauty of the foothills for generations to come. Compared to the closeby Stanford Dish hike this area is less developed (no paved roads) and also less busy with hikers, so it is even more of a nature experience, but you are also not quite as high up so the views are not as good as from the Stanford dish hike.
Also watch out for the Poison Oak plant which grows in this area which can trigger a multi-week painful rash.
