Coal Mine Ridge Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"On first glance at the town of Portola Valley on the San Mateo peninsula south of San Francisco, you’d never guess at the fantastic system of trails tucked away and woven through the hills southwest of the city."

"This crescent-shaped,493-acre preserve is almost surrounded by other Midpeninsula Regional Open Space Preserves —Russian Ridge west across the Skyline, Monte Bello and Skyline Ridge south, and Windy Hill less than a mile north. Skyline Boulevard forms its west boundary and Upper Alpine Road lies along its south side. Three lovely meadows lying just below the Skyline ridge are central attractions of this preserve. Their flowery slopes invite springtime outings. Groves of hand- some oaks and madrones fringing their grasslands are right for summertime picnics —easy, short walks from Skyline parking, or longer walks up the hill from Upper Alpine Road. Birds, deer, bobcats, and cottontail rabbits flourish in these meadows and forests. Mountain lions have been reported here also. This trail guide includes the following trails: Over the Meadow and Through the Woods, A Short Trip to a Protected Meadow, An Alternate Route to Skyline on Historic Upper Alpine Road."
