An out and back option that takes the Agua Caliente Trail past several hang gliding take off locations. Although steep in sections, this trail offers great views and a chance to immerse yourself into the flora and fauna.

You need to go early in the morning there isn't any shade. The trails are not well marked

A dry, mostly uncovered trail with some bugs and weeds. You get nice views of the city and the lake from above. Nice views of hang gliders taking off. Pretty tough uphills.

Less foot traffic than Mission Peak, so cows not as friendly but I have never had a problem with the creatures as I respect their territory. I pack in plenty of water, food, shelter (hat, scarf, jacket) hike over to Mission Peak. A little more shade than Mr, but main concern was moving along. Once you get away from dog park and pond, serene and peaceful with wind and critters - blue bellied lizards, snakes, spiders, soaring vultures etc

It's not as hard as mission peak but definitely gets your heart pumping at some parts with nice scenery to distract you at flatter areas

My son and I caught little bass here in the lake. It's a nice little find in the hills above Milpitas.

Located in Ed R. Levin County Park that has a $6.00 fee to enter. There were numerous trails closed off on the day we went so it required a hodgepodge of out and back routes to get some time in. We were lucky in picking an overcast day as there is no cover which means it will get hot on sunny days. We saw very few other hikers so if you really want to get away from people this is an option. Going to plan a return visit in the fall or winter when it is cooler and (hopefully) green.

upload photos always fail, not sure why, does that have any restrictions on 6MB pictures?
