Windy Hill Open Space Preserve Professional Review and Guide
"Windy Hill showcases the micro and the macro sides of nature. From the highest reaches of this preserve, there are excellent views from the ocean to East Bay; on narrow winding paths that climb through quiet woods, there are spectacular displays of wildflowers and autumn foliage. At Windy Hill, you can see the woods for the trees, and then some. This loop begins at the edge of Portola Valley, then ascends through woods to the top of Windy Hill. The return leg is a fast descent on a fire road with a quick detour around Sausal Pond."
