Excellent location for picnic, hiking and fishing. Witness nature and wildlife such as birds, coyotes and lizards, just a few minutes from Milpitas. Several great trails nearby. There are two ranches offering horse riding, close to the park. Be aware that there's no cellphone coverage.
Hiking at Ed Levin is some of the best in the area. Ed Levin offers great views on trails without the congestion like neighboring Mission Peak. My preferred route is Ed Levin to Monument Peak to Mission Peak and back to Ed Levin. I recommend dressing for different types of weather all year round AND to bring plenty of water. Much of the trail is exposed during summer, and the wind patterns change as you climb. This is a popular hang gliding area, so the wind on some days can be biting if you're not prepared.
