Santa Teresa Hills HP

We had an hour or so to kill in the South San Jose area, so we decided to knock out this easy peak. A short drive brought us to the trailead on Bernal Road where we parked and began our hike. Taking a few easy trails, we were soon about 1000 feet from the peak. The last little bit is on private land with no real chance of hiding so we just walked fast and hoped nobody came by.

After a short walk on the open field, we topped out.

On top!

We could see down into the IBM lot far below and realized nobody would really ever come up here except to service the towers. We quickly headed down and back to the car for a short, but successful hike.

The whole hike was 2.5 miles and 370 feet of elevation gain.
