Well shaded and good views of San Jose. A bit rocky in some parts so watch your step. Dog friendly, no issues with bugs.

Nice trail, mixed of hills and flat trail.. View of Almaden Valley and Blossom Hill at top. Go early so there is less people.

Avoids the big hill!!

Very nice and peaceful atmosphere. I saw a flyer saying you may see snakes, I was a little put off by that but I think it is a rare occurrence so don’t worry too much if you see it! Highly recommend for a quick get-away :)
