Midpeninsula Regional Open Space logo All Midpeninsula Preserves are open to the public free of charge, 365 days a year from dawn until one-half hour after sunset.

• Dogs must be controlled on a maximum 6-foot leash at all times.
• Dogs are allowed only in designated preserves or areas as posted.
• Moving dog waste off trail is not permitted.

You and your canine companion are invited to experience many dog-friendly trails on District preserves:

Foothills Open Space Preserve – all trails
Fremont Older Open Space Preserve – all trails
Long Ridge Open Space Preserve – designated trails only

* While in this area, visitors must have a leash in their possession and keep their dog under voice control so that they do not harass other park users, dogs, or wildlife. (Dogs are not allowed in any District water areas, including streams or ponds.)

Consider joining a docent-led, dog-suitable outdoor activity— a chance to socialize and exercise both your dog and yourself.

You are always welcome to stop by the District Administrative Office to pick up trail brochures, volunteer information, agendas, and other information:

Office hours:
• 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Mon. - Fri.
