A network of paths in and around the Stanford foothills west of Junipero
Serra Boulevard offer the best opportunities for hillside trail
runs and hikes. The most popular route is up to the giant radio
telescope known as "the Dish." This 3.5-mile loop--beginning and
ending at the entrance gate on Junipero Serra at Stanford Avenue--offers
a sweeping view of the Bay Area. Various entrances are available
to the paths. But watch where you park. Observe the signs so you
don't get a ticket.
