This moderate hike in the redwoods will take you through the original boundaries of the park and to the now vacant cabin where Sam McDonald once lived.
Look for banana slugs, deer, woodpeckers, several varieties of ferns, and California newts!
Over the years, POST has contributed 126 acres to Sam McDonald County Park. One key piece of property was donated to POST in 1988 by Albert Wilson, a longtime friend of Sam McDonald and fellow Stanford staff. POST subsequently transferred the land to San Mateo County Parks for long-term management and protection.
