Day of the Horse

Our annual celebration of the horse and main fundraiser. Festivities take place on the second weekend in October, with Saturday proclaimed as The Day of the Horse by the Town of Woodside. Whether you ride or just admire horses, there’s plenty to do and see for the whole family.

Our Trails Network - A Hidden Gem

Woodside and Portola Valley have hundreds of miles of trails over 500 square miles of rural residential properties. The system is a combination of public and private trails which link the community together, criss-cross the towns and connect them to 1,000 acres of trails in the San Mateo County Parks and the Mid-Peninsula Open Space District where one can ride from the San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean!
