All Midpen Preserves are open to the public free of charge, 365 days a year from dawn until one-half hour after sunset.
Teague Hill primarily serves as viewshed and wildlife habitat for the eastern side of the Santa Cruz Mountains and the Peninsula. For those interested in visiting Teague Hill, the only accessible route is along the Bay Area Ridge Trail.
Teague Hill Open Space Preserve is located in the Santa Cruz Mountains just above the town of Woodside. Private Property and California Water Service Company Property make it difficult to visit the majority of Teague Hill. Currently, there is only one designated trail that touches Teague Hill Preserve and there are no plans in the near future to create additional designated trails.
