We Want Your Visit to be Enjoyable, Easy and Safe
We have some tips for visitors to Edgewood Park that can make your trip enjoyable, easy and safe. As the Park’s popularity has grown, so have the demands on the limited parking spaces. Often, visitors park on Edgewood Road which carries a significant amount of traffic and is near freeway on and off ramps. In addition, the lack of sidewalks can put visitors at risk. Please consider the following alternative ways to access Edgewood Park and Natural Preserve.
I. Use the new weekend Park Shuttle with two route stops Redwood City and one in East Palo Alto and one in Menlo Park. The Park Shuttle begins service every Saturday and Sunday at 9 a.m. Learn more about route stops and times on our Park Shuttle page.
II. Enjoy the other side of Edgewood by starting your hike at these alternate locations (see locations on the map below):
- Park on Edgewood Road west of 280: Enter the park via its namesake trail, Edgewood Trail, and travel .6 miles where you can continue 1.2 miles until you come to the Bill and Jean Lane Education Center.
- Park on Cañada Road: Start your hike at the Clarkia Trail and enjoy the park with a fresh perspective. After traveling .6 miles, you can connect with either the Serpentine Trail or the Sunset Trail northbound. You will hike another 2 miles before reaching the Bill and Jean Lane Education Center.
We encourage you to come prepared with water, hat and sunscreen. There are no bathrooms at these trailheads.
