This trail is a little unusual than most other trails. First of all it wanders through prestigious Saratoga hill mansions. Then few sections connect with city streets that need help of GPS to walk city street to next section of trail. One branch of trail walks along the Saratoga country club that gives you beautiful lush green view. Also the initial segment has a very steep slope that takes about 7 to 11 minutes of climb. You can also visit Wedding trail which gives you gorgeous vineyard view of Garrod farm. I also ran into three horseback riders on the intersection of Toyon and Bay view trail. Overall all, this trail along with other neighbor trails provide many surprises.

Popular with locals, Parker Ranch Trail in Saratoga can offer a respectable workout, nice views of the city scape and an alternate entry point into Fremont Older Preserve. Our 4 mile hike includes a loop in a minor variation of the featured hike.
