I'm not really one to hike with no destination... and hiking to see smoggy views of San Jose in the distance doesn't do it for me. That being said, a lot of my friends like this area. Meh. I know dry hills are common for...More

This is one of my favorite places near the city. Beautiful trails, good options for families with strollers (some paved trails) as well as relatively remote trails. As some note, there are a lot of people on weekends when the weather is nice, so parking...More

On the way to the hill trails there is a small animal and vegetable farm which the children and adults enjoy. Great walking and hiking for everyone.

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
