In 1911, Mortimer Fleishhacker purchased 75 acres of property in the then rural community of Woodside. He commissioned Charles and Henry Greene to design a beautiful country estate for his family, and they spend a number of years on the project. A lover of a good pun, Mortimer Fleishhacker named the estate "Green Gables". They welcomed and supported the local horse community and the trail in the rear of the property goes back to those early years.

Much of the trail access, facilities and just plain fun enjoyed by all equestrian and horse lovers in and around Woodside can be traced to the vision and decades of dedication of Richard M. Delucchi- a passionate horse lover who’s been riding horses and his beloved mules since the early 1930’s.
A native San Franciscan, Rich is the definition of self-starter having started his own contracting firm at age fifteen! In addition to becoming a widely respected contractor and land developer, Rich also ran a dairy ranch for eight years during the 1940’s before finally settling in Woodside in 1951 with his wife, Blanche, and their daughters, Doreen, Claudette and Susan.
