The Penetecia Creek Trail, in Alum Rock State Park, is a beautiful 3.6 mile escape from urban San Jose. The trail is perfect for families and all ages.

The trail is accessible year round and features a creek and a lake. The trail offers ample shade as it meanders along a creek. There are benches placed along the trail in perfect locations for a snack and some water. Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed in this park.
