These stone walls are part of a network of trails and roads built by Chinese immigrants. In 1872 Simon L. Jones bought 1,500 acres of timberland in Woodside and developed them into farmlands, orchards and vineyards with the use of Chinese labor. These fine, enduring walls, constructed without mortar or coping, are a testament to the craftsmanship and expertise of Chinese workers, whose labors helped to build California.
