What? : Large
open space ridge without tree coverage so you can get nice sunset views
to the west. There are only few trails covering the hills. A popular mountain
When? : the best time to visit this park is at late afternoon where you can enjoy the sunset view.
the main parking lot, you are going
north west on Ridge trail. Once reaching all the way to Mt. Melville you need to go
back. there is a nice viewing point at Borel Hill top.
entrance option is at Silicon Valley Vista Point (hwy 35).
another smaller parking lot and hikes option at Audrey C. Rust Commemorative
Site; Located on Alpine road that is going down west.
lower section of the park you can go all the way to Mindego hill or the viewing point on the nice lake
(in and out hike). Another option is to climb the main park ridge section via Charqin Trail
and go back down on Ancient Oaks trail.
My thoughts: open landscape hills, good for sunset viewing and mountain bike trips.
