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 »
Always a favorite place to relax, spend time with the family, and plan a photo shoot. Beautiful place for a walk in the park. 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
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.
Great park for your family hangout. It has an upper and lower portions, each with its own lake for fishing (come early if you want to catch something, oh, make sure you call the ranger to see when they stock the lakes). Otherwise, it's on top of Milpitas hill so it's quiet and serene. The upper portion has a playground for your young ones, and of course both have their picnic areas for your grill. Enjoy!
Wonderful day at the dog park. The lake is full, the hills are green, the dogs are friendly. Very relaxing start to the day.
