I've been to Rancho San Antonio countless times. I went hiking there when I was a kid (about 10 years ago or so). I went hiking recently and I still love this county park. The walk is easy and you can look at farm animals. I was able to meet a pregnant cow! The cow didn't have any spots! :O... More

I've been walking in this park for years, they even have a small farm. This park will connect into a trail that goes to Palo Alto. Be... More

Hills, pine trees, views, this is a beautiful and peaceful hike. Lots of hills so you can get a decent work out too.

I love Rancho for the beauty and being able to get to nature quickly. No better place for a solo trail run because of the variety of routes. I also feel safe here because of the number of visitors. It is crowded and at times you will not get a parking space. I avoid it on weekends for this reason.... More

This park has everything for everyone: Short hike to a little farm for families with children on most weekend mornings, challenging running trails (Wildcat loop, PG&E trail ) for runners of all ages (mostly good early in the morning) and a variety of trails for hikers of all shapes and sizes. Don't miss the overlook view from Wildcat trail. If... More
