San Carlos Hillside Trails Plan

Through several years of community outreach and input meetings and efforts, the Carlos Trails Committee completed a Trails Connections Plan that was adopted by City Council in February 2007. The Plan identified and prioritized 14 possible connections to our local trail system as well as neighboring regional open space parks and trails, including Pulgas Ridge, and trails within the City of Belmont and the County of San Mateo.
