Rancho Corral de Tierra
Rancho Corral de Tierra (Rancho) is the newest addition to Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
At nearly 4,000 acres, Rancho is one of the largest undeveloped parcels of land on the San Mateo peninsula. Once planned for development, this land is now protected as part of our nation's natural legacy.
As the National Park Service assumes management at Rancho, we will be working with the community, California State Parks, and San Mateo County Parks to improve trails, trailheads, and trail connections.
