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.
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.
V R. on Demo Forest Trail
It's not demo forest, it's jones trail
It was good. It wasn't so hard as it is drescribed. We made the first loop and we weren't tire. In our way up was open parh, not to many trees or shadows but in our way down was close path with shadows and trees in both side of the way. There is not so many people or nobody was there but is realy safe and quite. I think is good for jogging, biking or stroll.
I used to hike these trails regularly last year when I was living in Los Gatos. Limikiln trail is 10 miles round trip. Priest Rock trail is around 8 miles round trip. The two trail intersect each other. These 2 trails together with the Kennedy trail segment connecting the 2 offers several training variations depending on your mood and energy levels. A full loop taking one of the the trails to its end point and taking the Kennedy trail to the other and returning on that trail will be over 10.5 miles with nearly 2500 feet cumulative elevation gain - very good preparation for harder hikes like Yosemite's Halfdome or Grand Canyon rim to river!
