Yesterday I was on the real estate agent & broker’s tour, viewing homes for sale in Saratoga and Los Gatos, when I noticed a pedestrian path that fed into the cul-de-sac at Carnelian Glen Court in Saratoga. Although I lived in Saratoga for many years (graduating from Saratoga High School), I didn’t remember this trail so went online to see if I could find a map. Google maps was no help, but thankfully, the well organized city of Saratoga was very helpful. I discovered several new hiking or walking trails that I hadn’t been aware of previously.
The city’s website includes a page with links to ALL available Saratoga trail maps which are all pdf files (so be prepared for loading). It offers both a map with all of the trails (shown above), a map of Saratoga Village displaying public restrooms & parking as well as streets, and maps to specific trails and info on hiking poles. The big map of all the trails takes a little while to load but is really fantastic.
