Top Rated Equestrian Town in the Country
In 2020, Cowgirl Magazine named Woodside the No. 1 Equestrian Town in the country – topping well-known areas nationally like Lexington, Kentucky and Ocala, Florida! In the article, Cowgirl noted the following: “there’s an elaborate trail system that weaves throughout the whole area. Horse owners enjoy year-round riding with the balmy weather.”
The town takes great pride in being known as an Equestrian ground zero. To ensure the trails stay safe and in excellent condition, it has its own Trails Committee.
A Cycling Mecca on the Weekends
Woodside has an intentionally small business district. The town is also popular among local cyclists and draws them in large numbers on weekends. The most popular road cycling routes include Old La Honda Road, King’s Mountain Road, Cañada Road, Southgate Drive, Skyline Boulevard and Highway 84. Mountain bike enthusiasts can head up 2,000 feet to Skeggs Point for near panoramic views of the Bay Area.

For the adults, relax with friends at your own private fire pit under the magically lit oak. Bring up to 15 guests. Huddle around the fire pit, drinking mulled wine and hot whiskey cider; sounds magical right?
