About

The preserve is in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains in South Santa Clara County. A glistening creek runs along the Llagas Meadow and deer, bobcat, mountain lions, and other wildlife roam throughout the preserve. In the spring months, wildflowers adorn the meadow and hillsides. Recreation amenities include parking for cars and horse trailers, accessible restrooms, and picnic tables.

The preserve has 10 miles of trails, from easy to challenging. The multi-use trails are open to hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians.

The paved, whole-access Llagas Creek Loop trail (0.5 mile) provides a full nature experience for visitors with limited mobility.
