The District purchased this historical area located above Stevens Creek Reservoir in 1976. The Preserve features 3.7 miles of trail, the historic Picchetti Winery, and surrounding homestead.
The Bear Meadow Trail invites a leisurely walk to a small pond, making a pleasant setting for a picnic. From there, the trail winds to the summit of a knoll, which offers superb views. The 1.9-mile long Zinfandel Trail provides easy hiking through shaded areas lush with ferns and a view of Stevens Creek Reservoir; the trail connects with Stevens Creek County Park.
HOW TO GET THERE
The Preserve is located in the Cupertino foothills. Exit Foothill Expressway from Highway 280, travel 3.5 miles southwest (toward the mountains) on Foothill Boulevard/Stevens Canyon Road. Turn right on Montebello Road. The Preserve is 0.5 miles up Montebello Road on the left.
