A long trail along the northeastern edge of Santa Teresa County Park.

Description

The Ohlone Trail starts from the Santa Teresa County Park eastern entrance at the edge of suburban south San Jose. The first 0.6 miles is relatively flat, as the trail goes through grass-covered hills with stands of trees, behind a golf course. A couple seasonal streams are crossed.

The Ohlone Trail then goes through a short, wooded section, as it crosses the Coyote Peak Trail, about 0.7 miles from the Ohlone Trail trailhead. After the shaded, wooded section, the Ohlone Trail again runs along a grass and tree-studded hillside, with the golf course still to the right of the trail.

About 1.3 miles from its trailhead, the Ohlone Trail leaves the golf course behind, as it now follows along Bernal Road to the right of the trail. The Ohlone Trail enters a wooded area for about its final 0.2 miles. There is a very, very short, but steep section at the very end of Ohlone Trail, where it meets with the Hidden Springs Trail, and comes to an end.
