Wonderful green space and hills in the middle of Cupertino! This is super easy to get to if you are living in South Bay and will worth the trip. The hiking trails are pretty short however. Still a very nice walk.

A 20 minute drive from when we stayed, it was a worthy Sunday evening visit. If you are going, make sure to take your jackets along as it might get a little cold. However, if you're planning on some rigorous walking and jogging, don't bother as you are going to sweat anyway! You can take your kids too. They ll... More

Well, with 3,988 acres of open space combined with another 165 acres you got it all! There are bike, equestrian and hiking trails. There is a working farm with cow, pigs, goats, sheep, chickens and other animals as well as an organic garden. Wow, bring the kids!

I have been hiking at Rancho San Antonio for 30 yrs. I never get tired of the beautiful trails, especially in the less crowded winter and spring months. Our kids loved Deer Hallow Farm, an educational "working farm". Springtime is great for seeing baby goats/pigs:) Parking can be a challenge on summer weekends, so we try to go during the... More

I've been to Rancho San Antonio countless times. I went hiking there when I was a kid (about 10 years ago or so). I went hiking recently and I still love this county park. The walk is easy and you can look at farm animals. I was able to meet a pregnant cow! The cow didn't have any spots! :O... More

fun place, but may be hard to find parking spot - 10-15 wait will get you a parking spot on weekend mornings many different trails with different levels.

This place is great for exercise and plenty of parking exist. I good time to walk is around 3:30pm, if you arrive after 5pm good luck trying to find a place to park. I've been walking in this park for years, they even have a small farm. This park will connect into a trail that goes to Palo Alto. Be... More

Hills, pine trees, views, this is a beautiful and peaceful hike. Lots of hills so you can get a decent work out too.

I love Rancho for the beauty and being able to get to nature quickly. No better place for a solo trail run because of the variety of routes. I also feel safe here because of the number of visitors. It is crowded and at times you will not get a parking space. I avoid it on weekends for this reason.... More
