Portola Valley Trails

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

With nearly the same number of miles of trails as there are of roads, our town has had a commitment to providing opportunities for walking and riding since the town's founding in 1964. Laid out, built by and, for many years, maintained by volunteers, trails are one of our most important assets. Trail signs will guide you in using both the roadside and wilderness trails. Please observe the regulations at all times.
