Santa Teresa County Park (N37.21 W121.79)

In the what currently feels like a never ending quest to go to all of the Santa Clara County Parks, we picked up another one this weekend – Santa Teresa.  I can honestly say that there is not much to report: it was sort of bland.  It was a pretty reasonable place to hike with the standard fields of golden grass and patches of green scrub oaks.  I think it is mainly used by mountain bikers and horses and it looks OK for that, if a little small (only 20 miles of trail total), and not too hilly.  So, in recap, good for locals but not really worth a long trip to go see.

Look, its a trail that could be anywhere in the bay area.

There is something pretty in the spareness of the flora

And as always you can see San Jose from any local high point, this time Coyote Peak.
