  • A beautiful hidden gem in San Mateo. Very well maintained park with plenty of open space grass area. Moderate hi Kiki game trails with an amazing overlook at the top of Sugarloaf Peak. It’s a climb...

  • This was such a great hike up a challenging hill. The spectacular view from the top of Sugarloaf is worth every step.

  • The park was nice, clean. I came 2 days in a row for the hike, 1 mile 1 way, and the view is nice, returned today to watch the sunrise, although it was cloudy, we still enjoyed the view. The trails have very narrow sections, be careful with bike hikers.
  • Great place for a little walk, play and picnic. I would probably use a riding toy or a bike with my toddler on the trails because there is a lot of poison oak at the edges of some of the trails. The playground is great for all ages. 2 play structures and rubber surface. It only has baby swings but Includes a small sand area and water play spout but the times it's on is not posted. On a warm day it can get pretty hot because it's in a valley so be aware of the weather. In October at about 5pm the playground is completely shaded. Other than that the playground has no shade but most of the picnic tabels do.
