About a month ago I set a goal to hike every open trail at Alum Rock Park before the end of the year. Today I thought I was going to finish but then realized I missed a couple short trails that both cross Penitencia Creek. (circled on the map below) There’s water running down the creek so I’m not going to cross it. Instead I’m going to walk both sets trails from each side of the creek and be done with it. Next I’ll finish hiking the Boccardo Loop Trail, part of the Santa Clara County Open Space Authority, which I hiked for the first time today and absolutely loved.
