Filoli estate in Woodside has reopened, though the estate house and the Quail’s Nest Cafe remain closed, as do picnic areas.

The Filoli estate in Woodside is back in business.

Visitors to the 654-acre National Trust for Historic Preservation site can stroll in the formal garden, hike the Estate Trail and view the overflowing flowers in the Rose, Knot, Cutting and Sunken gardens and along the Perennial Border, which Filoli representatives reported are blooming with roses, peonies, foxgloves and waterlilies.

The estate house and the Quail’s Nest Cafe remain closed, as do picnic areas. The Clock Tower Shop has plants and other items available for purchase in the Service Courtyard via credit card only. Limited restrooms are available in the Visitor Center.

Filoli representatives ask that visitors:

  • Maintain 6 feet of distance between household groups.
  • Wear face coverings.
  • Follow a one-way route through the garden and on the Estate Trail.
  • Wash or sanitize hands.

Filoli is located at 86 Cañada Road, Woodside.

Admission is $20 general; $10 for seniors, students, teachers and military; $5 for children ages 5-17; and free for children under 5 and members.

Tickets must be purchased online before visiting, including reservations for members.

Visitors do not need to print their confirmation email – Filoli will have names on a check-in list. The confirmation email will include a map of the grounds with one-way routes outlined. Visitors may print the map and bring it with them, as Filoli will not have printed maps available on-site. Pathways are clearly marked with arrows and signs.
