This beautiful and scenic 914-acre park and reservoir is just minutes from the urban centers of Santa Clara County. The park includes the 475 acre man- made reservoir available for shoreline fishing. The County park is also part of a chain of parks and open spaces connected by the Bay Area Ridge Trail, which, when completed, will connect Sanborn with Almaden Quicksilver County Parks as well as Sierra Azul Open Space Preserve and other parks in the greater San Francisco Bay region.

Very good hike and among the clouds it goes.. A bit muddy when during rains, but a refreshing one!!

Good moderate challenge, well-maintained trails. Nice amount of shade. Didn't realize the last bit was on the road, but no big deal. Good window of vista in the middle of the hike - we were able to see the Bay. Took us a little under two hours.

Lots of shade, decent inclines. Not too crowded even during weekends. Good running trail.

Very nice trail - good length and difficulty. Enough trees and easy to follow.

Great hike, but not much to see at the peak except a couple of transmission pylons. Watch out for hornets and rattlesnakes.
