Just south of San Jose on the west side of Santa Clara Valley sits Calero County Park, a beautiful oak woodland that POST recently helped expand. This hike at Rancho San Vicente will explore the newest addition to the park in the morning light, providing views of misty grassy hilltops, silhouetted oaks and the Calero Reservoir.
You will be joined by representatives of POST who will explain our contributions to Calero County Park, and the several other open spaces that make up an important area of protected habitat. We will then hike 5.2 miles on the Lisa Killough trail. The hike is primarily along a ridge, though there is approximately 350 feet of elevation gain at the beginning of the loop.
We will share more details about the event including meet-up location with guests who register, closer to the event. Please note that all minors must be accompanied by an adult or guardian for the entirety of the hike. While Rancho San Vicente is a dog-friendly, we kindly request that the pups stay home on this community hike.
Please register through Eventbrite with a valid e-mail, so that you’re up to date on possible weather cancelations, parking information, and more.
