Alum Rock Park is located in a canyon in the Diablo Range foothills on the east side of San Jose. The park offers 13 miles (21 km) of trails, varying from fairly level along Penitencia Creek to sharp switchbacks climbing to the ridges to the South Rim Trail and the North Rim Trail. The narrow floor of the canyon includes a visitor center, picnic areas, a playground, and sand volleyball pits.

Super fun trail run. Lots of chances to wander around the hills and explore. Will definitely go again.

South rim trail is closed indefinitely, don't waste your time if you are heading there.

In summer the view become wee~dy, and its kind of boring. Some up and down so it's a good walk after work for me. Park in the rustic lands spot it's free and the youth center marked as the start here is NOT free.

There is a notice on the trail head saying south rim trail is closed due to 2017 winter storm.
