Another Mid-Week Hikers hike, this time we took a short hike in Santa Teresa County Park.
We met up at the intersection of Bernal Road and Heaton Moor Drive. There is no parking lot here, but a fairly large amount of street parking, so it is not necessary to pay the usual entrance fee.
The proposed route followed: Road- Ohlone Trail – Mine Trail – Norred Trail – Joice Trail – Vista Loop – Joice Trail – Bernal Hill Trail – Mine Trail – Ohlone Trail – Road.
You can download the full park map here.
It was stated to be a ~4.5 mile round trip, my Endomondo data puts it to be 5.27 miles, but it does sometimes overestimate these things 🙂
The route was quite exposed with little shade, which on a hot day would make this somewhat more challenging, but this morning was a great morning for a hike!
It was sunny but not too warm, with a very pleasant breeze coming off the bay, and you could see for a quite a way across San Jose.
We again saw some deer in the park, very tame:
