The Ravenswood Open Space Preserve is open one-half hour before official sunrise until one-half hour after official sunset.
Need to Know
There are no services in the preserve, so make sure you have enough water, sunscreen and food for your hike or bike ride.
The trail is paved, so it is a nice diversion from the main Bay Trail
and provides you an opportunity to look out over the bay and look toward the East Bay.
The South Observation Platform Trail is a short, paved doubletrack trail that leads from the Bay Trail
to a wooden observation platform. It is open to bikers and hikers. From the wooden platform, you can look out over the South San Francisco Bay and look toward the hills of the East Bay. If you enjoy watching birds, a variety of waterfowl can be seen throughout the year. Once you have enjoyed the view, you can return to the Bay Trail
and continue your adventure.
Flora & Fauna
Ravenswood Open Space Preserve is a great place to observe a variety of birds that call the marsh and South San Francisco Bay home. During migration season, it is a great place to see sandpipers, dowitchers, and avocets that find rest in the preserve. Blue herons, white pelicans, egrets, and other ducks can also be seen in the preserve.
