Woodside is among the wealthiest small towns in the United States. Horses are part of the local culture. Numerous residents keep horses, and the town government maintains a network of horse trails. Some resident's homes are even considered farms.
The town is also quite popular among local cyclists and draws them in large numbers on weekends. Woodside is home to a number of open space preserves, including the Purisima Open Space, where both horseback riding and bicycling is allowed.
