Description

The Guadalupe Trail is a 2.4 mile side trip off of the Mine Hill Trail near its McAbee trailhead. It passes through beautiful, grass and wooded San Francisco South Bay Area hills. There are expansive views of the populated Bay Area on one side, and unpopulated, pristine, natural scenery on the other side.

From Mine Hill Trail, Guadalupe Trail starts gradually climbing a wooded hillside. As the trees thin, views of San Jose and the East Bay hills emerge, and the trail levels off. After a short time, it meets the Senador Mine Trail. It then turns away from the Bay Area.

The trail leaves the views of the populated Bay Area behind and gradually descends into unpopulated, pristine wooded, grass hill countryside. Views of the thickly forested Santa Cruz Mountains appear. The trail then begins a gradual climb to its highest point where it ends at the Mine Hill Trail.

Guadalupe Reservoir can be seen towards the end of the trail's final climb.
