The Stanford Dish Hiking Trail is located at 586 Junipero Serra Blvd, Stanford, CA 94305 it is a 3.65 mile paved loop. At it’s highest points you can see beautiful views across the Bay Area. The dish satellite is the halfway point in either direction during your run, jog or walk. There are no bicycles, skateboards, scooters or dogs allowed (except trained service animals), strollers of any kind are acceptable. This is a great place to walk/run alone bring your children, or push a stroller up the impressive hills for a difficult work out! There are wild animals out and about in the grass including but not limited to: Coyotes, turkeys, cows, mountain lions, deer, tarantulas, and various insects. It is rare that one would see a mountain lion here however. This trail gets crowded on weekends and early mornings, so get there early to find parking!  For more information on the Stanford Dish Trail click HERE!
