Edgewood preserve hiking

Edgewood park was the destination for our January hiking. We hiked on different part San Mateo County before.


 As January was extremely cold, we decide to hike in the afternoon. It was a very easy hike. It was neither very high, nor very long. 


We started our hiking from beautiful wooden bridge. The park was nothing but a vast grassland. Some part of the trail was covered by trees. Some parts were just bare. Thanks to the continuous rain, the hill was covered with light green blanket of grass. At the starting the path was wide. Then we took a turn by the side of a little waterfall. 


Then the path was narrow with cliff on one side, though it was not dangerous. The cliff was full of big trees. On the other side the hill was covered with grass. Then we reached a bare area. As we were going to take turn, I saw a little gofer was peeking from its little barrow. 


All of wanted to take a glimpse of the little creature. The poor little creature couldn’t come out , as we were there. Then we asked the young ones in our team to leave it. 


Anyway, we reached a flat green land on the top of the hill. Then we decided to come back on the same path, instead of taking loop, as some of the hikers were feeling tired. That was a nice walk. Though we wanted to rigorous hike. May be in February we could go for a rigorous one.

  7. Great hike and not too strenuous! You should explore all the trails in Marin County. You won't be sorry. Tons on Mt. Tam, and in Muir Woods, and in the Samuel P. Taylor State Park too.
