Stile Entrance Loop
This hike covers the northern half of the park starting from the "backside" in the Almaden Valley. It is mostly moderately hilly terrain with a few shorter steep sections. It takes you through a lot of open grasslands doted with patches of Oaks that can also be filled with great colors in the spring. There are also a few heavily wooded areas of Oak and Bayberry with fern covered forest floors. The "city side" of the trail has several ravines with densely packed Eucalyptus groves. In the fall this side also offers some great views of fall colors in the street trees below and some spectacular views of spring colors on the hillsides in the spring.
