Description

If being in the great outdoors is your pup’s idea of a good time, then it’s time for a visit to Anderson Lake County Park.  With acres upon acres to explore, this massive park will give them a chance to reconnect with nature and get some much needed exercise.

The park’s central feature is Anderson Lake. As Santa Clara County’s largest reservoir, it is a pupular fishing and boating destination. Folks take to the water in tubes, boats, and jet skis. However, swimming is not allowed. Please be aware that if the water level is too low, the lake may be temporarily closed to boating.

If your pooch prefers a land based adventure, take a stroll along the Coyote Creek Nature Trail. The 1.5 mile loop starts and ends near the Visitors Center. The trail meanders through grasslands, groves of sycamores, and a pawsome walnut orchard. Time your visit just right and you’ll also be treated to a gorgeous display of wildflowers. Keep an eye out for snakes and poison oak. Before setting off, grab a brochure so your doggo can learn all about the area’s history and wildlife.

If your pup still has energy to burn, hop on the paved path. This puptacular trail runs along Coyote Creek and stretches north for 15 miles. Needless to say, your dog will have plenty of room to stretch their four legs. Since it is lined with oak, sycamore, and cottonwood trees, your furry pal will enjoy shade as they trot along. It is a multi-use trail, so expect to see cyclists, joggers, and equestrians.

For a nice waterfront picnic, grab a spot in the Woodchopper’s Picnic Area, which is on the south end of the lake. Other picnic tables are located along Coyote Creek. Don’t forget to always have some clean up bags and fresh water on hand. Anderson Lake County Park is definitely one place your pup will want to visit again and again!
