For Hike Number 22, I drove to San Mateo County, just north of Santa Clara County, in Northern California. An easy drive up the 280 Freeway, very quick exit onto CA 92, and then a windy, foggy drive on Skyline Boulevard took me to Purisima Creek Redwoods OSP. I would park at the top of the ridge and hike down approximately 1,600 feet through second growth Redwood Forests to a canyon trail running alongside picturesque Purisima Creek. I would then loop around the creek and climb back up 1,600 feet to get back to the North Parking Lot. This OSP is part of the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District (MROSD) http://www.openspace.org/.
Thanks for sharing Dale! Your pictures are absolutely beautiful!! I hope to make it up to Purisima Creek Redwoods OSP some day!!
