. thought this might interest some people on the list.
I think that the trail being constructed will ulimately be the link
the upper end of Stevens Creek Blvd (west of Foothill) into San Antonio
The closest link to the park presently is Cristo Rey Drive over by the
interchange with Foothill. There is a non-motor vehicle entrance
under 280 in
one or two locations as well.
