Filoli has been a functioning estate for over 100 years and you can now learn more through the Estate Trail. For the first time, visitors can experience Filoli through this mile-long loop. Straddle the American and Pacific tectonic plates while you learn about the San Andreas Fault. Identify native plants used by the Ohlone and learn about the seasonal care of Filoli’s fields.
At the Sally MacBride Nature Center, open Friday – Sunday, you will find a collection of artifacts and wildlife of the natural preserve. Pass Red’s Barn, where the Roth family housed their prize horses. Explore the other domestic animals that called Filoli home during the Bourn and Roth eras. As you hike, you may even get to meet some of Filoli’s permanent residents like turkeys and California quail!
