San Jose’s Most Unique Hike
Enjoy art and nature at the same time
While there’s no shortage of topnotch hikes in Silicon Valley (like Almaden Quicksilver County Park, Los Alamitos Creek Trail, and Penitencia Creek Trail), the most unique one offered in the area is by the Djerassi Resident Artists Program, which hosts over 70 artists a year from different backgrounds (think visual arts, choreography, and musical composition). As not to disturb the artists in residence, there’s limited availability of the guided hikes throughout the 583 acres – roughly 26 a year are offered – which fill up quickly after opening. So if you’re planning on visiting the destination, mark your calendars and be sure to book this unique experience blending the best of art and nature!
