  • Easy to find. Bathrooms and park info at trailhead. Free parking, but limited. Wide trails, well marked. Some sections are steep so bring a hiking stick. It was dry but this trail could be messy...

  • Took Mine Trail in a northerly direction from the small parking lot on Bernal Road. That led to Bernal Hill Trail for a 3 mile loop. Visited on 3/18/22, and it became obvious that slopes that faced north were still green, even lush, in spots, while south-facing slopes were already drying out. But springtime wildflowers were in abundance on all trails. Excellent views of South San Jose neighborhoods and the mountains surrounding the South Bay. It’s a bit more trafficked than the more remote trails around the Bay Area, which is understandable given the easy accessibility to the park from 101. The power lines are a bit of an eyesore, but the rest of the park is attractive.
  • Amazing place. Great and active wildlife, plenty of space so it doesn't get too busy. When the hills are green it's heavenly
