PLEASE NOTE: On April 10th, the Grapevine and Toyon Trails to Hostel Trail will be CLOSED. Our dear friends at The Trail Center will be giving some love to our trails and providing maintenance. Thank you!
PLEASE CHECK OUR WEBSITE BEFORE YOU COME FOR YOUR VISIT. HIDDEN VILLA IS SUBJECT TO IMMEDIATE CLOSURE IN THE EVENT THAT A COMMUNITY MEMBER TESTS POSITIVE FOR COVID. WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.
Each registration slot provides 2 hours ONLY of access to our hiking trails to help assist with physical distancing. THE FARM IS CLOSED DAILY AT 5pm.
As our top priority remains protecting the health, safety, and well-being of our community, we’ll be limiting the number of visitors and open hours through a reservation system to assist with physical distancing and to mitigate the spread of disease.
In order to visit Hidden Villa, you will need to follow three sets of requirements:
- Display Proof of Advance Online Reservation (please check your spam folder for your confirmation email)

Please read the information below to learn how to meet these requirements.
Each reservation allows for one vehicle and its occupants.
Online reservations are required for entry. You will need to show proof of a valid reservation for your allotted time slot. We ask that you only sign up for one time slot and consider limiting visits to once per week.

WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS FOR CANCELLATIONS WITHIN 7 DAYS OR FOR RAIN. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING. WE HOPE OUR MODEST FEE STRUCTURE COMPENSATES FOR OUR CANCELLATION POLICY! THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING HIDDEN VILLA!
Smoke (Hazardous Air Quality) Policy: Unfortunately, heavy smoke continues to plague the greater bay area due to wildfires. Please be advised that if the air quality (AQI) exceeds 150, that Hidden Villa will close for the health and safety of our staff and visitors. Please check air quality monitors (airnow.gov or purpleair.com) for Moody Road in Los Altos Hills before driving out for your visit. As we are a non-profit facing substantial financial deficits, we ask that you consider making your fee a gift, and simply register again for a future date. However, if you'd like to request a refund, simply email us at [email protected] and we'll provide it to you within a week.
Thank you for supporting our registration process and our guidelines as we carefully reopen to visitation. We look forward seeing you!
