We go there when we feel like going hiking - We are not keen on having to drive too far for it to start with. The park has nice creeks which when filled with water after rain make me feel like "Yosemite in my back yard" ! The park still maintains a historic cabin, there is a large Bay tree... More

Great hikes of varying difficulty. Good place to see wildlife (deer, turkey, etc.). Difficult to find parking on weekends, so its best to go early in the morning or late in the evening. Note: park closes at dusk.

This is a great place for hiking, I go with friends , in addition to hike we usually have a good discussions on various topics from economics, politics to technology. Parking can be a challenge so car pool with your buddies. Hiking is followed by bagel breakfast either at Noah's or other places.

This is our "go to" hiking destination. Easy to get to off 280, this park has a variety of trails. Many are easy, some are quite steep. A farm with many different animals (babies in the spring!) is easily accessible on a flat trail. Several parking lots, real bathrooms (as well as outhouses), make it a pleasant experience.

One of my favorite weekday hikes.Wildcat loop is my favorite. Not to strenuous and great view at the top. Weekends are overwhelming. Parking is crazy especially early mornings and now the local neighborhood requires parking permit. They do ticket.

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.
