Rancho Cañada del Oro Open Space Preserve is located in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains west of Bailey Avenue and McKean Road in south Santa Clara County. The valley climate is cool and bright in the winter and hot during the summer months.

Mayfair Ranch Trail
New in 2007, this 3.1-mile trail begins at the staging area and climbs into oak woodlands and savannas to join the Longwall Canyon Trail. At this point visitors can continue into the preserve on a 4.7 mile loop or return to the staging area along a 1.2-mile route that passes into Calero County Park. It’s important to note that bicyclists are prohibited in the county park.

Longwall Canyon Trail
A steep climb, this 2-mile trail provides a picnic table and horse trough at its peak. The summit offers panoramic views of the valley floor, Diablo Range and surrounding ridges. It connects to the Bald Peaks Trail, which continues into the preserve.

Bald Peaks Trail
The 1-mile segment of the Bald Peaks Trail within Rancho Cañada del Oro joins the Catamount Trail, allowing bicyclists as well as hikers and equestrians to complete a loop that returns to the preserve’s staging area. Bald Peaks Trail also continues into Calero County Park, which is closed to mountain bikes.

Catamount Trail
This 1.7 mile trail has steep and moderate stretches as it rejoins the Longwall Canyon Trail. From that point it is possible to return to the staging area through the county park or along the Mayfair Ranch Trail. Bicyclists must use the Mayfair Ranch Trail.
