Pulgas Ridge OSP is somewhat unique in that it is the only open space park in the South Bay area that allows dogs off-leash. Although the trails are on-leash, there is an area in the center of the park where you can let your dog run crazy.
There are a few nice options for hiking trails here. Today's hike began at the short connector to the trail along Hassler Rd which leads into the park. We took Polly Geraci Trail to Dick Bishop Trail and then briefly connected to the paved Hassler Trail, leading into the off-leash area.
After some good off-leash fun, we backtracked on Hassler Trail to connect to Dick Bishop Trail and then made a right on Blue Oak Trail, for about a 3mi. hike. For a longer hike, take Dusky-footed Woodrat Trail.
