View our slideshow to experience Rancho San Vicente.


Prominent at the southern tip of Almaden Valley, Rancho San Vicente rises above quiet San Jose streets where the city meets the wild. For the past 10 years, this property was under development threat. Now that POST has transferred Rancho San Vicente to Santa Clara County Parks for permanent protection, we can all enjoy this magnificent property.

Protection of Rancho San Vicente connects thousands of acres of open space lands and link miles of hiking trails and wildlife corridors. Take a look at a map of the property.
