trail locations for Cupertino, California

We liked it a lot

Great trail for a quick hike, mountain bike or run. Lots of good views, good footing, not technical at all. Can be narrow at places.

The trails are heavily trafficked during the weekends. Parking is also a challenge if you don't arrive early enough (before or around sunrise). I had an Asian woman behind me on the trail and she kept on Facetime-ing, loudly, for a good 10-15 minutes before I finally managed to shake her off by picking up the pace.
The trails are dusty, but shaded almost 50% of the way. Change in elevation can be pretty steep for some, but the views from vantage points at the top are pretty amazing. Overall, the landscape is all about the undulating hills, the flora and a few deers representing fauna.
Do put on sunscreen and feel free to ditch your hiking shoes/boots for something as light as a running shoe.

Great hike with beautiful views

Nice hike to the reservoir with a nice breeze.

I've been here a few times with my friends. Lovely trail, no shade though. Have to go early morning in the summers to enjoy the trail. The view from top is beautiful, very limited parking though so a star less...

Wide open spaces with not much traffic during the week. Did it mid afternoon on a weds. Some pretty good climbs to stretch your legs out. Not much cover to stay out of the sun.
