This place is a dog's paradise! The off leash area is wooded, and hilly so it's an adventure for you and your pooch!The Preserve features an easy-access trail and a dog off-leash area. The Cordilleras Trail, which is designed to accommodate wheelchairs, strollers, or visitors desiring a less strenuous open space experience, adjoins the parking lot and travels through a meadow to a bench located in a quiet, wooded area by Cordilleras Creek. Across the creek, the one-mile Polly Geraci Trail ascends an oak-covered hillside to the top of the Preserve, where vegetation changes to chaparral, providing a great place to enjoy the view. The Polly Geraci Trail meets the paved Hassler Trail, which in turn connects to the Blue Oak Trail and Cordilleras Trail, creating an easy two-mile loop. Visitors may let their dogs roam off-leash in the 17.5-acre area in the center of the Preserve. http://www.openspace.org/activities/ideas_for_dogs.asp.
