Description

This segment traces the western boundary of 10,822-acre Joseph D. Grant County Park on a broad trail. Traverse grasslands, remote oak woodlands, and an ancient bay-tree forest to reach a 2,457- foot vista point with outstanding views of the Coast Range high peaks, the Santa Clara Valley, and Halls Valley to the east. Much of the route is in sun, so plan for an early start and carry plenty of water.

This trail description is excerpted from the 2019 Guidebook. For details on all trails, trailheads and more buy the book from Wilderness Press.
