Event comments

Walk the gentle hills of beautiful Alum Rock Park overlooking San Jose. The 3 loop choices are on paved and packed dirt trails. The 5k part gives you the best views of Silicon Valley while the 10k adds historic locations in the park and the creekside trail. This city park was a spa destination in the early 1900s. The 7k and 10k routes pass some sulpher springs as you walk on portions of the old railway right of way. Return to Chris and Holly's for a Hot Dog lunch starting at 11:30.
