The groves in Purisima Preserve are cathedral-like, biblical beams of light raining down between densely packed redwoods, challenging even the most ardent atheist to consider the possibility of a higher power. It’s like Muir Woods without the tourists.Purisima has 3,360 acres and 21 miles of trails off Highway 92 near Half Moon Bay.
