Parking fee is $5.00, the hike is easy and once you reach the top there are such amazing views. Left me wishing it was longer. Worth the fee for those views alone.

This rating is for the whole park. There are over 20 different trails ranging from easy to difficult. I recommend the mountain goat trail for a challenge.

First time at Santiago Oaks Regional Park. Went up Peralta trail and came down Grasshopper trail. Not sure how many miles, but seemed about 2 maybe 3 total. Peralta trail is pretty steep and so is Grasshopper trail ..definitely a good workout and beautiful scenery! When you arrive parking is $5 on weekends $3 on weekdays and you can ask for park map of all the trails when you pay for parking. There are so many different routes/trails to take and it can get confusing. Overall It was a great first time experience and will definitely go back!

Good diversity in terrain and difficulty. The trails are maintained very well and nice restrooms.

Nice trails, great for training. A little confusing as the paper maps are too large of scale. It's difficult to read the parts close in where all the trails are constantly intersecting.

Great trail for running, especially with my dog. We run for about 5 miles twice a week and have only taken the exact same set of trails a few times in the year that we have been running. Very nice people, but steer clear from the trail on weekends after 9am if you're adverse to crowds as this is a popular trail.

This trail is better suited for an overcast day or winter months. Not a lot of shade. A good number of short trails with a few steep inclines.

Just a word of advice for the newbies...most of us like the quiet of hiking in the outdoors. If you feel the need to have "Dance Party USA" while you're hiking how about get some headphones! The rest of us don't want to heat your annoying music.
