Windy Hill Preserve
Trails: Lost Trail, Hamms Gulch, Eagle Trail, Razorback Ridge, Lost Trail
Why We Love It: This loop, with both open air and forested sections, is great for birdwatching and Eagle Trail is especially nice after rains where it follows Corte de Madera Creek.
Staff Note: All trails but Eagle Creek are also open to equestrians seasonally.
