Popular hiking, biking and running trail. Challenging uphill grades give way to flat areas to recover and go forward. Take it to St. Joseph’s Hill for spectacular views.

This was a great hike with well marked trails. Lots of street parking available. I’m glad I went after the rain when everything is green! I only gave it 3 stars because you hear the traffic from 280 for most of the hike. I’m sure that’s true of several hikes around here, but I prefer more silence or nature sounds. There were a lot of mountain bikers on the trail.

Great view of Los Gatos on a clear day. We could see all the way to SF! Also pretty views of Lexington Reservoir and the hills. Otherwise just dry grass and chain link fence in some spots. Mostly open hike in the sun. Decent elevation gain for a work out but not torturous. Good for a short on time workout loop.

This is one of my favorite trails! It is just the right length and intensity to make you feel like you had a decent work out when you do not have a lot of time. Compared to many of the other trails in the area, there is enough tree cover to give periodic respite from the sun. The east side of the hill offers more shade than the west. At the top of the hill there are great views and often refreshing breezes. Many people hike, trail run, and mountain bike this trail.

Really nice hike, a decent amount of people hiking and biking for a holiday. Little shade.
