  • I had a cranky wheelchair bound aunt so we confined our trip to the loop on the Spring Valley side. Even then, we were blessed with spectacular vistas in all directions. The park is located at the bas...  more »
  • I come here to relax, read a book, walk in the great outdoors, see a wild turkey, get away from the hustle and bustle of Silicon Valley. It works.  more »
  • First time at this county park and we wished we came here early in the morning instead of in the late afternoon. It was still a beautiful sunny day to go for a hike. Unfortunately, there wasn't a lot ...  more »

  • Extensive hilly trails of different length whether if you want to hike half a day or while day. Easily accessible from the freeway. Quiet without the people traffic as you would find in other parks. Animals galore - turkeys (gobble, gobble) and cows. Watch your footing of cow dong. The best place in the area.
  • We enjoy bringing our dog to the dog park up here. Very beautiful park. If you bring your dog, please be sure to pick up after him/her. $6 fee to enter. You can also purchase an annual pass.
  • Amazing experience especially on this day with partially cloudy and sunny. I got a few great shots. I often go here when I want some quiet lonely time for myself.
  • A nice short hike with some pleasant views. Watching the wildlife around the pond area was very enjoyable. My daughters (3 and 6 years) also enjoyed the hike. I was a little disappointed how close the "nature trail" was to the road.
  • What a beautiful spot. Go for hikes, watch the hang gliders, there are two fenced dog parks for both small and large dogs. (There is PLENTY of parking near the dog park.) Sometimes you can see horses on trails with riders. There is a picnic area. Just a great place. Consider an annual pass.
