Close to the urban areas of Silicon Valley, this is a go-to destination for a gentle hike or to simply enjoy the views.
This landscape is yours to enjoy largely thanks to POST, who safeguarded much of the surrounding land and ensured generations of Bay Area locals have a place nearby to escape into nature.
Take in sweeping views of Stevens Creek Reservoir as you follow a meandering path along its edge. As the county's first park, this is a must-see destination.
Acorn woodpeckers, bobcats, sticky monkey flowers and gnarled coast live oaks.
In 2004, POST protected 238-acre Stevens Canyon Ranch, just upstream from Stevens Creek Reservoir. Safeguarding this property helped to maintain the landscape’s rural character and added to the established network of adjacent open space, including Saratoga Gap, Monte Bello and Picchetti Ranch Open Space Preserves.
