Wunderlich Trail Run & Buck's

In March, we return to one of PARC's most liked trail systems, Wunderlich Park in Woodside. Along with several groves of majestically beautiful Redwoods, all of Wunderlich's trails are well shaded. With well-maintained trails, Wunderlich is just a short drive from Palo Alto.
