John Brooks Trailhead Professional Review and Guide

"Hidden among the hills and residential communities of the city of Belmont, located south of San Francisco in San Mateo County, is a small open space preserve that offers a surprising abundance of secluded and challenging hiking/riding trails. I was pleasantly astonished upon visiting the preserve.

The park features a nice mixture of wide- and single-track trails with some technical segments and a few steep climbs and descents. Trail junctions are generally well marked with wooden posts that indicate a numbering system for the trails. The flora are typical of Bay Area open spaces that are not within coastal environs. These include poison oak, buckwheat, clematis, California sagebrush, toyon, sticky monkeyflower, coyote brush, honeysuckle, coastal live oak, California bay, elderberry, and buckeye. Poison oak should be recognizable and avoided."
