It is hard to believe that, only half a mile away from the center of high tech, there is such a place with spectacular views, lush trees and animals both domestic and wild. A farm is in the county park on which sheep, cows, rabbits, pigs, chicken, ducks, and goats are raised. Outside the farm, there are wild turkeys and... More

What a spectacular view and the animals are right there. We saw wild turkeys and deer. They stared at us and we stared right back. They seem to love visitors. Its a very nice place to visit and take a walk. Weather was nice the day we visited.

Amazing views. Of course, that means you will be climbing very very high. The trails are steep. There is a farm at the base. A great variety of chickens, goats, sheep, a very large pig and some cattle. We bought some persimmons. 3 for $1. Public restrooms are available at the base.

This park sits in the heart of busy silicon Valley. Many trails, hills and astonishing views available to freshen up!

Great to escape the valley. Quite busy over the weekend but there's plenty of space to get away. Nice mixture of flat and a little bit more steep trails. Gorgeous view from top of the mountain.

Very dry and dusty in October 2016. Lots of parking but crowded doing the weekend mornings. Many many miles of walking and running trails. It is a wonderful outdoor area.

I've run the various trails here for many years. What a resource this is. Crowds up early on weekends, so plan to get there early.

There are miles and miles of great trails for runners and hikers. A little dusty, but not at all. The only bad thing is that the parking is VERY limited and can take a long time to find a spot.

Weather you are a running or walking, beautiful trails. During the day, you can also visit the animal and vegetable section. Good for children and adults. "Bring water"

My husband and I hike at San Antonio County Park each week since we live close by. This is a great time to reflect and rejuvenate our minds and exercise at the same time. Each time we are there, we usually see deer, turkeys and many other wild animals. One time, we even saw a mountain lion in the distance... More
