It seems odd that in order to get to enjoy Rancho San Antonio Park one must jockey for quite limited parking and then maneuver the crowds on the trails.

One of my favorite weekday hikes.Wildcat loop is my favorite. Not to strenuous and great view at the top. Weekends are overwhelming. Parking is crazy especially early mornings and now the local neighborhood requires parking permit. They do ticket.

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.
