All Midpen Preserves are open to the public free of charge, 365 days a year from dawn until one-half hour after sunset.

Saratoga Gap Open Space Preserve is a 1,540-acre outdoor adventure. The Saratoga Gap Trail parallels Skyline Boulevard passing under the spreading branches of weathered oaks before dropping into a cool, wooded Douglas fir forest. The trail ends across from the Hickory Oaks trailhead to Long Ridge Open Space Preserve and Highway 35. Attractive lichen-covered boulders and sandstone rock outcrops add to the scenic value of this area.
