Description

Long Ridge Open Space Preserve is one of many parks in the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District, and is a lovely recreation area for hiking enthusiasts, and their pups!

This area is well loved for its diverse terrain and awe inspiring views of the  of the surrounding land. Unfurtunately, there are some restrictions when it comes to canine visitors. Dogs are only permitted to hike with their families on the first section of the Peters Creek Trail and a portion of the Chestnut Trail, which just so happens to also be the northern section of the Bay Area Ridge Trail. Before you begin your hike, it's a good idea to double check the map so you know exactly where your pup can hike. Even with these rules, your pooch will have a furrific time trotting through this natural preserve and soaking in the beauty.

During the spring, Long Ridge Open Space Preserve is known far and wide for its barking good display of wildflowers. Watch for hounds tongue, milkmaids, mission bells, western heart's ease, starflower, and woodland star. If you time things just right, you may even come across some wild strawberries. And if you look closely you may see some signs of the local wildlife. Turkeys, feral pigs, and coyotes all call this place home.

As a nature preserve committed to the integrity of the land, there are no modern onsite amenities provided, so make sure you bring plenty of water for both you and your pupper. They will definitely need a drink of cold water after their hike. Also, don’t forget to have some clean-up bags on hand and be ready to stoop and scoop when necessary.

For a great time at a beautiful California park, plan a visit to Long Ridge Open Space Preserve!
