This park is a great place all year around. There are probably only a few days when the winter rains make the trails a little to muddy for a great hike. Visit from any of the entrances and you will find great vistas and trails.

Hiked multiple trails and I was very impressed with the signage along the trail that pointed out the history of the various points of interest. Lots of history in this park.

we run here every weekend with our dogs. Even on busy weekends and Holidays - it never feels crowded. Gorgeous views on San Jose and Mountain View. Interesting historic sites from the mining town. Great for Running, Hiking, walking - there is a trail for every distance you want.
Note = no water on trail - so carry your own.
