A little time ago, we finished in our quest to visit all the 30 some Santa Clara County Parks and we had a list of 3 we needed to revisit to determine which we liked the best: Sanborn, Mt. Madonna, or Grant. Now that we finished the revisits, we have a winner: Sanborn! Yay and huzzah. Grant gets a close second, followed by Mt. Madonna.
That being said, we really enjoyed our day at the park this weekend. First things first, it was raining rather hard at times which was delightful and a refreshing change from blue skies around here – and I am not being sarcastic. It was nice to experience weather and hike through a couple of clouds though I could have done with some less mud as the trail was very slick in places.
We took the northern route around the park this time and it was about 8 miles of hilly, quiet hiking. I hope you enjoy the pictures of the hike below.
