Excerpt: If you love Filoli, but always wanted more of a chance to explore the Woodside estate’s vast grounds, you’re in luck. On June 8, Filoli opened a new half-mile loop, called the Spring Creek Trail, which takes you along a scenic creek bed and through redwood and madrone trees. The path is lined with wildflowers and song birds chirp. Hikers will see the historic flume, the water system built over 100 years ago by William Bourn, who constructed Filoli.
