Good hike suggestions within 1 hour south of San Francisco?

Asked by occ (4083points) March 14th, 2008

I’m trying to find a good, short-ish hike in the area south of San Francisco. I’ll have about 2 hours for the hike, and afterwards have to be in Burlingame (about 20 min south of SF). Any ideas for a really good hike somewhere around there? Santa Cruz is too far south… somewhere closer would be great.

Crystal springs is a beautiful area for hikes.

Ditto for Half Moon Bay

Also Skyline Blvd area. Theres a winery with gorgeous views. Thomas Fogarty Winery, it is off Skyline Blvd. I was there once and still remember breathtaking views.

Rancho San Antonio down in the Cupertino hills.

Thanks for all the suggestions! We ended up going to the open space preserve off of Skyline (92) called the Purisima Redwoods preserve. It was beautiful! I would definitely recommend it for other hikers in that area. And it was only a 15 min drive from Burlingame.
