Sanborn County Park 
Santa Clara County
    

The Place

        The park’s topography is dramatic—from the park entrance, the steep slopes rise more than 1500 feet in less than a mile to Skyline Ridge and the crest of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Responsible is the San Andreas Fault, which passes through the park and traces directly beneath the grassy field and park entrance.



Getting There

        DIRECTIONS:  From San Jose, take Hwy. 85 to Saratoga Ave. West. Go approx. 2 miles to Saratoga Village where the street name will change to big Basin Way (Hwy. 9). Go 2 miles up Hwy 9 and turn left on Sanborn Rd. proceed 1 mile on Sanborn Rd. and turn right into the park entrance. After paying parking fee at the ranger booth go to the 2nd parking lot where we will meet..

Drive time is 40 minutes – Parking $6 – Dogs not allowed


Walking the Walk

        (Level 3 - Miles: 6 - Elevation ~1200')  We will leave from parking lot and go thru the campground to get on the Sanborn trail. We will turn left on the Skyline trail and go approx .7 miles to the spot where we will have the meeting. We will return via the same route. A nice hike with some good elevation climbs and a great spot for a summer hike as the trail is shaded under bay and redwoods for almost the entire way. 

 

Know Before You Go

        RECOMMENDED:  Hiking sticks are recommended as there are a few short steep sections on the trail. 

Drive time is 40 minutes – Parking $6 – Dogs not allowed
