Join us for an easy two-hour hike and picnic at Edgewood Park and Preserve, Redwood City, San Mateo County
We will hike the 4.2 mile Sylvan and Serpentine loop which has an interesting mix of vegetation and pretty views! The trail is in shade and sun so plan accordingly in case of a sunny day!
Edgewood Park and Preserve, County of San Mateo
Space for parking is very limited (one paved parking lot on Edgewood outside of the gate and a smaller paved lot inside the gate with only 13 parking spaces), so we suggest meeting at 9:30 am at the Edgewood Park 'N Ride Lot and carpooling from there!
Edgewood Park ‘N Ride Lot Directions:
Northeast corner of Edgewood and 280. Coming South on 280 exit Edgewood Road. Stay in left lane of offramp. Turn left at Edgewood. Go under freeway and turn left into Parking Lot. Coming North on 280 Exit Edgewood Road. Stay in right lane when exiting. Turn right onto Edgewood and be prepared to make an immediate (one car length) left into Parking Lot.
We will begin the hike from the 4.2 mile Sylvan and Serpentine Loop entrance at 9:45am. To get to the trail head, walk from the parking lot south towards the picnic area, following the signs for Sylvan Trail. As the path rises slightly, you'll reach a signed T junction at about 200 feet (the path to the right heads towards the picnic areas, and the restrooms). Turn left and you will be at the Sylvan Trail entrance.
We will have a picnic lunch near the park entrance after the hike! Please bring food for yourself, and something to share if you can. Don’t forget to hydrate before and during the hike as well!
If the weather is questionable, please check here before leaving for the hike, for any last-minute changes.
