This scenic, easy hike is a great choice for campers and families at the Santa Clara County park. The Meadow Trail passes the pen holding the park's small herd of white fallow dear - a crowd-pleasing locale for youngsters. The park south of San Jose, California, has three popular campgrounds that might leave parents wondering where to work off some of their kids' energy. While some kids are up for much longer hikes, this 2.5-miler is a great choice if you're not sure how much the little tykes can handle. When you're done, wander over to the Henry Miller House site and explore the ruins of the summer house he built here during the 19th century. The white fallow deer were given to his heirs by William Randolph Hearst, the famous newspaper baron. With its abundance of shade, this is a great all-season hike.
