This park sits in the heart of busy silicon Valley. Many trails, hills and astonishing views available to freshen up!

Great to escape the valley. Quite busy over the weekend but there's plenty of space to get away. Nice mixture of flat and a little bit more steep trails. Gorgeous view from top of the mountain.

Very dry and dusty in October 2016. Lots of parking but crowded doing the weekend mornings. Many many miles of walking and running trails. It is a wonderful outdoor area.

I've run the various trails here for many years. What a resource this is. Crowds up early on weekends, so plan to get there early.

There are miles and miles of great trails for runners and hikers. A little dusty, but not at all. The only bad thing is that the parking is VERY limited and can take a long time to find a spot.

Weather you are a running or walking, beautiful trails. During the day, you can also visit the animal and vegetable section. Good for children and adults. "Bring water"

A short drive just off of highway 280 to escape from the silicon valley pace and high density housing to enjoy nature. Several miles of hiking trails that are fire roads and narrow paths. Spectacular views of the valley are abundant up several hills. Nice...More

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