This beautiful and scenic 914-acre park and reservoir is just minutes from the urban centers of Santa Clara County. The park includes the 475 acre man- made reservoir available for shoreline fishing. The County park is also part of a chain of parks and open spaces connected by the Bay Area Ridge Trail, which, when completed, will connect Sanborn with Almaden Quicksilver County Parks as well as Sierra Azul Open Space Preserve and other parks in the greater San Francisco Bay region.

Some steep inclines. Shade on most of the trail up. A few rocky/slippery sections. We took Lime Kiln up, and Priest Rock Trail back down to where our car was parked. Nice hike!

Nice little urban escape leg stretcher hike. I like to come here after work or when I just need a little time to myself as it is very close to the city but still provides a little bit of mother nature respite. The hike up can be a butt kicker the first few times around but it doesn't take too long and the views at the top make it worth it. The first time I came here I got a bit confused as there are multiple ways to get to the top but they all end up at the same spot so just follow the signs and you'll be fine.
There are trailheads at opposite ends of the park. I like to park at the Lexington reservoir side. The trailhead here starts as a gnarly incline right off the bat which is a little bit of a preview of things to come. Also watch out for mountain bikers as they (me included sometimes) like to barge down the hills from time to time.

Not accessible via Foster Rd as suggested by driving directions. We used Jones Rd instead. Nice hike, scenic vistas, separate paths for hiking and biking first 0.6 mi. First mile is mostly uphill. Somewhat noisy from traffic on Hwy 17 below.

Good trail with a few tough climbs and a very fun downhill for mountain biking. The uphill can be steep, and the downhill has a few berms and no real spots for jumps. The trail can often be crowded mid-day and on the weekends.

Parking at Lexington reservoir a d hiking up to Vista point is 2 miles uphill. There's a loop at the top so not too repetitive and great views up the bay and across the reservoir. A feast for cardio.
