The Hiker's Hut at Sam McDonald County Park

The Hiker's Hut in Sam McDonald County Park, San Mateo County CA

Sam McDonald County Park - trail shot

The Hiker's Hut is a hidden treasure, owned and operated by the Loma Prieta Chapter of the Sierra Club. It can be reached from several different trail heads, but the primary one is a one and one-half mile hike from the main parking lot at Sam McDonald County Park. Starting up the trail, the first half-mile leads steeply up through a redwood forest; the last mile heads over grassy meadows and wooded ridge tops.

Take a look, and see if this is your idea of a quick get-away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. It works for me!

How cool is that?  Love it!  I love great outdoor excursions.  Sounds like a lot of fun!

That's quite a nice hut. We have a few around here in the Cascades but they are mainly 4 walls...just enough to get one out of the wind/rain/snow and what ever weather needs hiding from. That's hardly ever too much sun!

Hey Larry -- you and your son would love it. Keep it in mind if you ever plan a trip to this area.

Hello Glenn - it's not raining in your new profile pic! Very nice. This 'hut' is definitely more than a survival hut--although there's nothing wrong with those; even more important.

Lottie, what a great video tour of the Sierra Club!  It looks like a fun place to stay with friends for a get away!

Good morning Pam! The Hiker's Hut is a great place to visit. I've been enjoying it for close to 30 years!

Great video! Thanks for the overview of the Hut and confirming that you can get cell coverage there. My wife and little daughter and I have it one of these upcoming weekends. Can't wait!

Hi Josh, you'll love your visit there. It's a magical place. I've taken Brownie Scouts, Girl Scouts, my daughter's 10th birthday was an overnight there. I've brought family and friends, my yoga group, etc. Always fun; a new adventure every time.

You might be interested in my Facebook business page, Peninsula Living: San Mateo County and Silicon Valley Real Estate. In addition to real estate, I post info about things to do on and near the Peninsula, and since hiking is a great joy of mine, lots of park reports are there.

Wishing you a great trip to the Hiker's Hut!
