This place is great for exercise and plenty of parking exist. I good time to walk is around 3:30pm, if you arrive after 5pm good luck trying to find a place to park. I've been walking in this park for years, they even have a small farm. This park will connect into a trail that goes to Palo Alto. Be... More

Hills, pine trees, views, this is a beautiful and peaceful hike. Lots of hills so you can get a decent work out too.

I love Rancho for the beauty and being able to get to nature quickly. No better place for a solo trail run because of the variety of routes. I also feel safe here because of the number of visitors. It is crowded and at times you will not get a parking space. I avoid it on weekends for this reason.... More

This park has everything for everyone: Short hike to a little farm for families with children on most weekend mornings, challenging running trails (Wildcat loop, PG&E trail ) for runners of all ages (mostly good early in the morning) and a variety of trails for hikers of all shapes and sizes. Don't miss the overlook view from Wildcat trail. If... More

Been to this place many times. Just wonderful to hike or run for a few (or a lot of) miles with a view to some of the South Bay area or on a clear day a view all the way to San Francisco. There are many trails you can follow, all well marked and maintained. Some of the hikes are... More

a wonderful gem for local hiking in Silicon Valley. Well marked trails with many options for differing levels of hikes. Be sure to decide how far you want to go before setting out as there are one mile, 3 mike, 10 mile and more hikes. Easy to do a 3-4 mile loop. Parking is terrible, not nearly enough spaces for...
