Enjoy up to 18 miles of unpaved hiking trails at Santa Teresa County Park. There are amazing wildflowers to be viewed from the months of March through June. Take the Pueblo Trial to connect to the Stile Ranch/ Bay Area Ridge Trail.

So this trail actually starts in a residential area before entering santa teresa county park, no biggie just FYI. The trail itself is fantastic for trail running. Once you get past the cow farm you're greeted with nothing but rolling hills with limited shade. The trek down is a little bumpy so bring trail running shoes. Overall fantastic.

This is not moderate at all is it EASY...great to just get in a walk of 7 plus miles

Beautiful view and lots of options to extend hike. Park with clean restrooms is an added perk.

We visited Santa Teresa County Park and did one of the loop trails. The portion we walked was part of the Bay Area Ridge Trail. 6.3 of the trail's 73 miles are located and end in this park.
