Pearson-Arastradero Preserve is a beautiful mixture of rolling grassland and evergreen forest. It varies in elevation from 275 feet in the northeast to 775 feet in the southwest. Close to Highway 280 in the city of Palo Alto, access to this preserve is relatively easy, especially for residents of the Peninsula.
Wildlife that is not uncommon to see are deer, bobcats, coyotes, and many varieties of birds. Each area of the preserve has something different to offer, whether it is a view of the bay, a quiet walk through the grasslands, or a snooze by the lake.
