So much water that it was still flowing down the spillway at the now-filled Lexington Reservoir!
We could walk up the Los Gatos Creek Trail to Lexington Reservoir; the trail is high enough above the creek. Not a serious hike, though.
St. Joseph's Hill Open Space Preserve. Small, but with mostly-exposed trails and mostly-gentle grades on high, rolling hills.
Perfect. Especially at this time of year, before the baking-hot sun of summer (or spring or fall, for that matter). You can't really get lost up there, either; little need for advanced planning.
almost seven miles. (Not to mention the three miles we covered, walking to and from the trailheads.)
Nearly ten miles. Not bad for a walk-out-your-front-door-and-take-a-hike kind of day.
