Bring you hiking shoes and your sense of adventure and go on the de Anza trail commencing on Palo Parado Trail recently improved by the state. Venture west off the trail just a little and see the Santa Cruz River miandering along side the train where Juan Baptista and Fr Keno stopped to rest and let their horses drink the water and refresh themselves. It is very relaxing and great for seeing birds and taking pictures.
At the end of April, the park is going to lead people through a four miles hike along the de Anza Trail and provide a bus for those who don't want to hike both ways. It's pretty level and you will get the feel of how it would be for Juan Baptista (Spanish explorer) and Fr Keno using this trail years ago. Bring your camera and good closed toed shoes.
