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

The trail also can take you to the kids farm which houses a cow, pig, sheep etc. You can have a picnic in the shed next to the farm. The hikes cash be easy to strenuous depending on the path you choose. Parking can be... 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...

I visit this park almost every weekend as I try to get my heart a good workout. PG&E trail is probably the most popular trail for the hikers and definitely challenges your fitness level. There are other trails in the park (accessed from the main parking lot) that are more leisurely. These trails also have plenty of shade from the... More

Go past the crowds and past the farm. Check out the animals first of course. Do the major or minor loop. take plenty of water as it get dry here. for major loop (8 miles from parking lot) take 2 liters per person. Shooter loop take 1 liter (3-miles). Don't go straight as you will end up in san francisco... More
