This is a nice place to take a hike. In addition, it is enjoyable to see the farm animals at the Deer Hollow Farm area, which is a working homestead and educational center.

It can get busy on the week-ends.

This park is less than 10 miles from our home, and we usually end up at Rancho when we want to go for a 2-4 hour hike. The variety of trails makes it possible to have a great time whether your group includes very young or old people or very fit people. The PG&E trail appeals to those who want a challenging hike. The others go from moderate to easy. Lots of deer and other wildlife to see during mornings and evenings. And the farm is a delight for kids of all ages.

Coming here always brings back memories of my cross country training days. Great views with challenging hills. What more could you want?

After the last few years working in the Los Altos/Cupertino area, I never even paid too attention to this place until now. Really glad I finally had the fun opportunity to hike here with a great group of friends. Be careful with parking, though. On weekends, parking can get pretty crazy. Would definitely be a good choice to go early in the morning or maybe late morning when it's not too hot. But there's lots of shade and trees along the trail and we also saw a farm! Deer Hollow Farm, I think it was called. Would love to come back soon enough for another adventurous hike :)

I am a regular visitor and neighbor to Rancho San Antonio Park. I love going there to walk the trails, and usually see wildlife, such as deer, turkey, quail, ground and tree squirrels and various hawks. Rainy season brings herons and egrets to the hillsides, looking for frogs and small mammals. Occasionally I have seen bobcat and coyote, which are shy during heavy-use times. Rancho is home to the white-tailed kite, which can often be seen hovering over a meadow. Deer Hollow Farm, about a mile into the park, is a must-see, especially if you have children. It serves as a teaching farm, and features a cow, ducks, geese, chickens, goats, sheep and pigs; there is also a garden with the crop-plants labeled. I like that it is level around the most heavily used area of the park for an easy walk, but you can also get a great workout climbing the PGE trail up to the top of the mountain for a terrific view. Trail maps usually are available in the Park. As other reviewers have said, parking is difficullt on weekend mornings.
