New Grasshopper Loop Trail Opens June 3

As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District is also celebrating our 250th mile of public trail. The new 1.3-mile Grasshopper Loop Trail in La Honda Creek Open Space Preserve opens on the afternoon of Friday, June 3.

Open Stories: Craig Britton

Much of the land protected by Midpen can be attributed to the efforts of former General Manager Craig Britton. During his time at Midpen, the District grew from just eight preserves to the 26 we now own and manage!

Open Stories: Steve Abbors

Former Midpen General Manager Steve Abbors is a naturalist at heart. In conversation he casually throws out facts about birds and butterflies. He logs hundreds of trail miles per month. A main driver for the work he did throughout his career was caring for the land.
