Explore the scenic Rancho San Antonio Open Space. Take the Chamise Trailto a tranquil, secluded meadow in the Duveneck Windmill Pasture Area. This was once the location of a picturesque windmill from former ranch days when cattle freely roamed the hillsides. Take the Mary Davey Loop trail to the Chamise Trail to enjoy the Duveneck Windmill Pasture Area

best trail to do practice for long hikes. you can start at Pg&e and reach black summit via quarry trial. that makes its 12.5 miles of round trip. Do it twice and you are ready for any hike around in the range of 22-25 miles.

Entered from the Hidden Villa side. Walked the "Creek Trail." Continued onto the Black Mountain Trail. A little bit of incline but basically a mellow hike along a charming creek with a tree lined trail. About 1.5 hours.

Nice hike through oak woodlands and meadows. A little climb from the moody road side brings you into the meadows. A trail continues up black mountain, and you can also access rancho San Antonio
