Visited park and Sierra Vista Open Space Preserve to bike. For bikers, trails and miles are limited, but the wrap-around and reward sections were fun. You will earn the fun, however, because some climbing sections, for me, were hike-a-bike. For hikers, you could spend a day hiking the perimeter. For everyone, max out the water you carry. Visited on a Monday morning and lots of people, mainly walkers, on trails. If you make it to the top you'll be rewarded with expansive views of San Jose. This park has lots of historical structures - stone bridges, train trestles, a cabin, hot spring ruins- along the paved road.
A must visit. Alum Rock 🤩 one of our favorite area to explore. It has all levels of hikes easy to strenuous. The best is to start from Minerals Spring, which is the last point till you could drive and park your car (there are around 6 parking spots right after you enter alum rock park gate. You should always drive at 15mph as the roads inside are curvy and there are many cyclist and hikers walking by. Parking was made free on a Sunday we visited but however is $6 Even the youth science institute is worth for children. Can end the hike with a picnic if you are with family.
