Bike-Hike, Rancho Canada Del Oro Open Space

My meetup group did a two-hour plus hike at Rancho Canada Del Oro open space preserve. I rode my electric-assist recumbent to meet them, so between the ride and hike I did about 3 1/2 hours. I was pretty wiped out afterward but had a good time. Rancho Canada Del Oro backs up against Calero County park, there are many miles of trails available. It’s amazing how remote you can get this close to San Jose City limits. We did a little over 6 miles with 1400′ elevation gain.

At the highest point of the hike, there is a great 360 view here. The highest peak behind us is Mt. Hamilton (4265 feet), you can’t quite make out the white buildings of Lick Observatory because there was a bit of fog not burned off

Nice single track, with lots of Oaks and Madrones
