Join us for the next Diablo Foothills Open Weekends


For two weekends this spring, the Open Space Authority will be opening up the normally reservation-only Diablo Foothills Preserve to anyone who wants to come explore this new property south of Gilroy.

Doan - Vista - SJ - 07-17-2011 - 2

This preserve  will be open on Saturdays, April 27 and May 4, for walking and mountain biking and Sundays, April 28 and May 5, for walking and horseback riding. You can explore on your own or join one of the organized activities including docent-led nature walks and outdoor arts and crafts.

You can find the full schedule of events, trail map, and more information about the preserve on our website. 

Protected in January 2007, Diablo Foothills is an 819-acre undeveloped preserve with rolling hills, oaks, ponds, and creeks that are part of the primary watershed for the Pajaro River, as well as Coyote Creek. This open weekend event is part of the Authority’s continued effort to expand public access to its 22,000 acres of managed lands, this event will help our community learn about these protected open spaces, their wildlife and natural resources, and habitat restoration plans.

Save the date and join us for one of these special access weekends!
