From Milpitas, take 680 or 880 north and
exit Mission Blvd. East.
Turn right on Stanford. (Second stop light after getting off of the
freeway) Stanford dead ends on the park trail head. This
at a steep incline all the way to the top at 2517 feet, about 2000 feet of climbing in about four miles. The only
is when the incline drops from a murderous angle to a "sucks less"
Never the less, this hike offers one of the most panoramic
of the bay that any local trail will offer. Once you get close to the
cross the ridge, you will get a view of the other side of the
mountain as well.
This trail is not stroller friendly. Small children need
proven durable hiking skills or have parents with proven durable carrying skills. Allow up
hours of hiking at a brisk pace for going to the top and back. Take a picnic lunch and sit down and enjoy the view at the top. Historically, it can be very windy and sometimes chilly at the summit. Wear layered clothes just in case.
