And lot of them with beautiful trails- up hills and flat. You are rewarded with birdseye views of the silicone valley near and far as you hike. The beauty of it is, you don't have to drive too far. It's right at the Cupertino foothills.

A great place to bring your children to - they have a small petting zoo/farm - kids can see pigs, goats, chickens... If you are into some serious hikes, you will like it as well. The only bummer is parking - be careful, if parking...More

Good for giving cooped up children an outdoor space to roam. It also has a nice little farm with animals. Great if you are in the area, but not a destination outing.

Great place to walk. Good trail for kids that ends at a "farm". Parking very tough on weekends.

If you like to hike, this is an awesome park. Many choices, and if you go towards the top on a clear day you can see to San Francisco and down to San Jose. Good options for muscle burning hikes as well as more casual...More

Take your kids to Deer Hollow Farm. Check times/days when docents are there and animals are out. It's an easy (flat) mile walk (bike or stroller) from the parking lot. Picnic area is there, too. Bring your own food! You can buy fresh eggs (again...More

There are restrooms at the entrance, and porta-potties a mile later at the farm. There are no restrooms on the rest of the trails. Water is available at the start and the farm. There is also water at the top of Black... More

The last time I was in the park they were allowed, they of course must be leashed.
