Lovely maintained trails for hiking which are beautiful all year round. You can see the redwood trees that once covered the area in this preserve. I am not sure if you are allowed to camp there overnight. Great for picnics.

Lesser known, no crowds when we visited. Relaxing, lots of shade, places to stop and pull out your lunch bag. Kids and I enjoyed.

This out-of-the-way little known park is a great find. Lovely setting especially in spring, close to downtown Saratoga. Great place for a wedding.
