Trail riders, hikers can access Wunderlich trails year-round

On horseback or by foot, year-round access is now available to the public at historic Folger Stable in San Mateo County's Wunderlich Park.

A multi-phase, all-weather trail-improvement project has winterized many of the trails in Wunderlich Park. The project was a collaborative effort by local organizations and government entities, including the Mounted Patrol Foundation, the county, the Community Horse Advocacy Program for San Mateo County (CHAPS), and the Woodside-area Horse Owners Association (WHOA).

A second phase of the project is slated to begin in the spring of 2012, with 40 percent of the $18,000 budget still needed to be raised.

Trail riders can access 17 miles of trails in Wunderlich Park and connect to 24 miles of trails in Huddart Park. Equestrians can take part in trail riding activities with the Folger Stable Trail Club led by head wrangler Sam Bivins.

For non-riders, there are unlimited hiking opportunities throughout the park. The Carriage House Museum inside the stable is also open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays.
