Visitors can experience Filoli through this mile-long self-guided trail. Straddle the North American and Pacific tectonic plates while you learn about the San Andreas Fault. Learn about the seasonal care of Filoli’s fields and identify native plants used by the Ohlone. The Filoli estate is located on the traditional territory of the Indigenous Ohlone people.
At the Sally MacBride Nature Center, which is open everyday, 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 Agricultural Field, where other domestic animals called Filoli home during both the Bourn and Roth eras. As you hike, you may even get to meet some of Filoli’s permanent residents including deer, turkeys, and California quail!
