Wunderlich County Park - Search Nearby - Added by Josh Currie

Wunderlich County Park is an easy little escape on the Peninsula. You'll walk under towering Redwoods, cross over creeks, and summit to expansive meadow views of the Bay Area.

Located in the iconic Silicon Valley town of Woodside, Wunderlich County Park offers a number of hiking trails as well as some horseback riding trails through the wilderness. 

Once in the parking lot, you will see a number of stables, riding ring, as well as a beautiful historic stable that was originally owned by the Folger Family (The best part of waking up, is Folgers in your cup). 

Grab a trail map, very nicely laminated for some reason, and head up to the the trail head which starts at the left of Foldger Stable. There are three main loops that will bring you right back to the parking lot each increasing in length and elevation gain. I suggest the Meadow Trail loop which is about 4.5 miles and should take about 1.5-2 hours without stopping. 

Definitely bring some water and maybe even some picnic goodies to enjoy the view once you reach the summit of the Meadow Trail. It really is a great little afternoon hike with a few different landscapes a long the way!
