From: Upper Razorback Ridge Trailhead
To: Spring Ridge Trailhead in Portola Valley
Follow the Windy Hill ridgeline through a sheltered forest and across rolling grasslands on a narrow footpath and broad wagon road. Enjoy sweeping views of the San Mateo Coast and Santa Clara Valley. True to its name, strong winds are possible in this preserve, as is coastal fog. Since this is a relatively short trip, hikers and equestrians may want to do the 6.6- or 6.2-mile round-trip. Bicycles are only allowed on a short 0.5-mile section.
Bikers restricted to a short section.
Elevation Gain/Loss 420 feet/550 feet one-way
