The El Corte De Madera Open Space Preserve has miles and miles of hiking trails through redwoods and fir evergreen forest lands. Most of the trails are single track.

I did enjoy the distance and scenery on this trail but it wasn’t quite as pleasing as other nearby hikes. I didn’t do much research or visit any of the specific historic or natural sites that the preserve offers, just went on a whim having found it on another website.

Unfortunately I let over a year go by before posting this so I don’t remember much about it other than it was scenic, a good hike, but not one I’d likely return for, favoring Wunderlich or Huddart Park if returning to this area for hiking again.
