  • 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 »
  • We walked over an hour and still didn't see half! It is a very green and quiet with steep hills so you can do some hiking and burn lots of calories. We didn't have a car though so we got tired! Nature...  more »

  • A hike cannot be better.. lovely place to go for a walk or all levels of hike... not much shade or trees on the hiking trails, so I suggest to go early in the morning or on a cloudy day.. beautiful Lake in the center where you can find people fishing. My experience become better when I saw people paragliding and it was a delight to watch them. Amazing view of Bay on one side and modern infrastructure on the other.. if you have a dog you will love this place even more as they have a dog park here.. you can barbecue here too perfect place for a day out...
  • Love this place. Paragliding and Hang gliding watch and the pond area with dog park are awesome. Great gazebo with BBQ pits and benches
  • Very nice and peaceful place. It is a home for several birds and wildlife. I have spotted deers, rabbits, mountain lion, coyote here.
  • It's a huge park on the east side of Milpitas. Some uphill driving is needed in order to reach the park. There is a $6 park fee on most days. There are lots open fields, parking spaces, trees, and waters in the park and I think it's very good for kids to run around, hiking, or running as there are lots shades and water here.
  • Escape from the Silicon valley. Fish, hike, bike, fly a kite, hang glide, play ground, doggie park, what can't you do here?
