Description

Calero County Park is truly one of Santa Clara County’s treasures. Spanning a whopping 4,471 acres, it is tucked away in the eastern foothills of the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains. It’s divided into two sections, the area surrounding Calero Reservoir and the rugged wilderness that is full of puptastic trails. Pack up your pooch and head on over!

If you and your pup are into water sports, then you’ll feel right at home at Calero Reservoir. Launch your boat and enjoy a day of cruising around the water and soaking in some rays. You may see some water skiers, jet skiers, power boaters, or anglers. Picnic and barbecue facilities are available on the shore of the lake, so bring some food and have a paw-ty!

If your pup would rather hit the trails, venture into the park’s backcountry. With nearly 20 miles of trails to explore, this place will keep your pooch busy. As you wander through the woodland, chaparral, and riparian habitats, watch for wildlife. In the spring, the wildflowers are in full bloom and will add a burst of color to your hike.

Please note that the very southern portion of the park borders the Rancho Canada del Oro Open Space Preserve, an area where dogs are not allowed. To help protect this land, canine hikers are not allowed on any trail south of Bald Peaks Trail. But tell your pup not to worry, there are still miles and miles of trails that welcome furry friends.

To make sure the only thing visitors can smell is the park's natural fragrance, bring some clean up bags and promptly pick up after your doggo. Also, your four legged friend will be barking appreciative if you pack plenty of fresh water for them to drink. Make no mistake, this is one park your pup will never fur-get!
