Discover the La Honda Creek Open Space Preserve

Anh-Minh Le | January 17, 2018 | Story Now In

6,142: That's the number of acres that comprise the La Honda Creek Open Space Preserve, which opened in December.

The nature preserve boasts 6 miles of hiking and horseback riding trails, as well as stunning wildflower displays and coastal views. The Midpeninsula Regional Open Space acquired the land in 2006, so its debut has been a long time coming.

Further plans are in the works, including adding more trails and an education center; mountain biking will also be allowed in the future.

While Lower La Honda Creek is currently open to all (no dogs, though), a no-fee permit is required for access to Upper La Honda Creek. The public is invited to participate in various preserve activities; in January, among them are willow-cutting and pond restoration.
