We love hiking here. The preserve has a series of trails which are a combination of open space, as well as some shady areas. Nothing to steep or difficult. Good for those wanting a light challenging hike. Come early for parking.

Arastradero is a really nice place to go hiking (or biking) with a lot of different options for length and difficulty. There was so many different trails, its like a pick your own adventure. Dog-friendly as well which is really nice. It's popular with bikers so keep an eye out. Great views at the peaks of most trails.

One of my favorite runs on the peninsula - dirt trails, both forested and open space, rolling terrain with some steeper options.

I regularly take my dog and he loves it. I occasionally see coyotes, deer, horses, and sometimes wild turkeys.

The parking lot has water and bathrooms. Convenient.

Limited parking in the lot between 8:30 and 10:30 am on weekends. Come early.

Highly recommended.

Loved the fact that you can enter from close to the Alpine Village and quickly find yourself in a lovely forested area and come out to and expansive meadow. Great 6 miles loop to a large pond and back. And the trails have just the right amount of sand and dirt so it's not hazardous. And the views and immersion into the beautiful outdoors just 20 mins from downtown is great!

So worth the short drive out here for wide open spaces and beautiful views! There was a nice unmanned center with information and excellent bathroom facilities at the parking area. Be sure to grab a map because there are so many different trails! They had a nice recommendation for one of the more longer hikes that had a nice variety of hills, wildflowers and sunny open vistas as well as some more shaded areas to traverse. Spent about 2 hours here.
