If you are a walker, runner or hiker coming to Cupertino then you don't want to miss this popular area. The trails are well laid out and there is even an historical farm to visit; yes, in operation with sheep, cows, chickens and a garden. The kids in particular love the farm. On the many trails you will see deer, wild turkey, quail and more wildlife. There are creeks and amazing views of Silicon Valley bellow.

This park is well worth a visit. Enjoy

Rancho San Antonio is a beautiful place to take the kids for a nature hike, see some animals on a farm, and even bike. But be careful, adults are required to wear helmets too inside this park!

This is a terrific place to take wonderful hikes, very close to Los Altos, Sunnyvale and Cupertino. This is a very well used park. You should be able to find parking on the weekdays but on the weekends it can be challenging. There are so many options for difficulty and variety of hikes. Many of the hikes are among the trees and shade which is great on a hot sunny day. There is a working farm with animals and a garden to visit. There are often baby animals to see. There are a couple of bathrooms, one by the farm and another in the larger parking lot area. There is also an area for flying radio controlled aircraft. You can't take your dog but if you have a horse you can ride on the trails. This is my one major pet peeve about this park I don't think they should allow horses on the most used trails in this park. It is pretty disgusting to come up on all the horse poo while you are hiking. There are plenty of other areas for horses to ride and this park has so much pedestrian use, I think horses should be banned. Other than horse poo, I am a huge fan of Rancho.

We went there for hiking recently and were happy to have discovered such a nice place. We went till the peak and the view from there was nice. We could see the whole south bay area and some sea... it was nice. Trail itself isn't very hard so anyone can go there. We also spotted some deer that was kinda refreshing. Would love to go again sometime.
