Portola Valley is an incorporated town in the California Bay Area region. Neighboring Woodside and Los Altos, this small town is nestled between an expansive open space and the hustle and bustle of Silicon Valley. Portola Valley sits beside a 28 million-year-old earthquake fault known as the San Andreas Fault, which has not produced an earthquake of significant magnitude since the devastating 1906 San Francisco Earthquake. With a population of 4,592 and a commitment to maintaining its expansive trail network in the Open Space Preserve, this California town draws hikers, campers, and small-town folks with an appreciation for pastoral quietude.


The nineteen hundred acres of open space in Portola Valley feature meadows, grasslands, redwood forests, salt marshes and clusters of oak trees. This area is also home to many endangered species, including a wide variety of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and plants. Residents treasure the town’s commitment to preserving its open space. In addition to its rich and beautiful natural environment, Portola Valley offers modern developments such as the Town Center. Here, visitors and residents alike can visit the county library, a community hall offering classes, recreational playing fields, and a Historic Schoolhouse.

With a rich history, excellent public schools, a beautiful landscape, and a town government staffed with volunteers, Portola Valley is a hidden gem near the California coast. The quaint, rural landscape is perfect for retirement or visitors seeking a quiet refuge from the busy tech world of Silicon Valley and the greater Bay Area.
