Two new Ohlone-Portolá-themed interpretive panels have been installed on Crystal Springs Regional Trail. Flanking the marker for the Portolá Expedition Camp Site located at the top of Hillcrest Blvd near the trail entrance, the panels describe the practices of the native Ohlone inhabitants as well as the Portolá Expedition’s experiences during their exploration of the region.
The panels were created in collaboration with San Mateo County Parks, the Millbrae Historical Society, the San Mateo County Historical Association, the City of Millbrae, and the Millbrae Community Foundation. A dedication ceremony was held on December 15, 2022.
