We did this hike Sunday 7/15 and it is STILL OPEN! We got there around 4:45am (we knew it was going to be 105 degrees with no shade during the day) and parked at the dirt patch 1/4 mile before De Anza Resort since they were not open yet. We started the trail at 520am. The sun was starting to come up so we had a little sunlight and started following the train tracks. We arrived at the main trestle around 9am. We stopped and took pictures and chilled at certain areas. Once your at the main trestle you can hop over the chains and scope the other side of the trestle. Looks like you can keep going but we turned around and went back since the heat starting coming around 10am and we knew it was a 2-3 hr walk back. We got back to our car around 1pm. It took us over 6 hours with picture taking, chillin, scoping the trains.

Overall this hike was amazing! Definitely a unique gem. The views are stunning, the tunnels, trains, and trestle have so much preserved history. Its insane! We brought 5 liters of water between 2 people and sandwiches. We also brought an umbrella (helped tremendously with the sun) since we knew there was no shade. The hike back to the car was brutal with the heat and the sun. If we didn’t have umbrellas we would of been burning. Also bring flash lights for the tunnels especially handy for the longer ones. Bring lots of water and some snacks and enjoy the journey of this hike!
