Early morning is the best time to hike. I’m not sure if foxes lives here but I saw a gray fox-like by the bushes or just a Siberian husky not on leash.

Good workout rewarded by great views on southern San Jose. Except for some moments on Vista Loop and Bernal Hill Loop, the power poles always remind you that you are not far from civilization.

Wonderful little hike if you are looking to get your nature fix! The view of the hills are absolutely stunning this time of year due to the rainfall. The trail was pretty low trafficked, though it I did do this on a Monday morning. I would recommend bringing sunscreen and water since the first portion of the hike is under the sun and uphill!

The parking lot could probably fit 7-10 cars. At 9:00 am it was empty, but when I returned at 10 it had filled up.
