There are a lot of great loops out of Huddart Park down in Woodside but Lonely Trail may be my favorite. I get very spoiled running in the Headlands and having panoramic views of the Pacific but I’ll always love running in the redwoods over anything. Lots of shade and benches throughout to take a load off, and plenty of other trails to go off and get lost on, really can’t beat it.
Pro tips: Bring $6 in cash for parking. You will find water and bathrooms at the trailhead but they don’t allow dogs. Editors note: Enjoy lunch at Robert’s Market before the drive back home.
