For three consecutive weekends in October and early November, the Open Space Authority will be opening up the currently by-reservation-only Diablo Foothills preserve just south of Gilroy to members of the public.Most of the public access weekend days will be separated by activity. On October 20-21 and October 27-28 the Saturdays will be open for walking and mountain biking and the Sundays will be open for walking and horseback riding. The final Sunday, November 4, will be open for all three activities.
As part of the Authority’s continued effort to expand public access to its 22,000 acres of managed lands, this event will help our community learn about these protected open spaces, their wildlife and natural resources, and habitat restoration plans.
Diablo Foothills Preserve is located at 6280 Cañada Road, Gilroy. The parking area is located just after you pass the windmill on your left.
