Description

The Sierra Vista Trail is a great trail traversing the hillside and connecting the Boccardo Loop Trail to the Upper Calavera Fault Trail. The trail is a gradual downhill heading west to east with a couple steeper sections at just under a mile and a mile and a half.

The trail winds through the hills, giving you glimpses of Penitencia and Arroyo Aguague canyons and downtown San Jose. A hike around sunset will not disappoint, as the views are enhanced by the setting sun.

Flora & Fauna

Typical grasslands and live oak woodlands. Some birds such as hawks and woodpeckers.
