Crystal Springs Segment (CS Regional Trail) is a 4.5 mile one way hike with 237 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 4 miles south-southwest of San Mateo California. The trailhead is car accessible. May and June are the best months to enjoy this hike.
As part of the 15-mile Crystal Springs Regional Trail, the Crystal Springs Segment starts near Highway 92 and travels North/South near the Southern end of the Crystal Springs Reservoir. It's nothing more than a spur trail following Canada Road before branching off into Huddart Park to the South. End to end, this section isn't all that exciting and cars are visible most of the time. However, the trail can be used as an easy connector to Edgewood Park and the Sawyer Camp trail, which might be ideal for trail runners.
Keep in mind, there are no services provided.
This hike is listed as One-Way.
