She emails: “We did the whole loop, and those white blooms are cherry blossoms in the parking lot :).
“I loved the view of the ocean from the top. We did cross Skyline to take few photos of the ocean beyond the rolling hills and mustard.”
Windy Hill trails are accessed from two Portola Valley locations. There’s a large parking lot on Portola Road with room for 25 vehicles; a smaller pullout area is near the intersection of Willowbrook and Alpine. Windy is one of the few local preserves that allows leashed dogs on most of its trails.
