After reaching the Reservoir the trail becomes more shaded and hilly. Few people nice run. For reference, names of the trails in the loop : Stevens Creek Tony Loop Trail, Lookout Trail, Vista Loop, Fern, Coyote Ridge then finally back to Stevens Creek Tony Loop Trail.
We jumped on at the Stevens Creek Reservoir and hiked the Loop and Tony Look Trails. The Tony Look trail is moderately rolling with a few good views. You will hear the gun club for a good portion of the hike, but the noise fades to white noise after a while.

Great hike - serene and peaceful - with great views and lots of shade. Parked at the winery which is a great spot to end the hike.
Did the Zinfandel trail and Orchard Loop to get close to 5 miles.
Nice trail, plenty of shaded spots along the trail so it doesn't get too hot. The trail is very narrow in some spots and there are a couple spots where hillside erosion has done away with significant parts of the trail and where one misstep could potentially result in a fall/slide down the hill.
My favorite feature of the park is its closeness to mi casa. My second favorite feature is the view of the reservoir when you get up high enough and come to an open area. My third favorite feature is the abundance of wildflowers. Not so favorite feature? poison oak taking off and being all up in your face on the skinny parts of the trail.
