Trailheads and Recreational Activities

Trail winding through woods with flowers bloomingOpen Space and Mountain Parks manages 155 miles of trails! Links below will take you to information about recreational activities, individual trailhead pages (including trail maps), rules and regulations, and other useful visitor information.

Parking - Know the Facts

It is unsafe and illegal to park in a way that: 

  • Blocks emergency access gate or fire lane  
  • Blocks pedestrian gate or driveway 
  • Prevents horse trailer parking 
  • Along any highway or a roadway where prohibited by sign 

All vehicles parked in a manner described above are subject to being ticketed/towed. 

Never park in the roadway.  
The roadway is defined as the space between the white (fog) line and the yellow (center) line. If ANY part of your vehicle (tire, mirror) is between the white and yellow lines, your vehicle is a hazard and can be ticketed/towed immediately. 

Because parking is very limited and our trailheads are quite popular, please show up early to get a parking spot.
