12650 Tallent Ave, San Jose, CA 95127
http://m.google.com/u/m/z0ofbN

Here's another local spot. Located in the San Jose foothills. At the base(that's what she said)of Alum Rock Park. I will upload some pics here in a few and some video too.
There's alot of elevation change here. Which is nice. Uphill trails. Dirt piles,some are hard to climb cuz they're loose dirt. Some rocks here and there. At the creek and other spots. As well as some fallen trees to climb on.

Good ol penetencia creek.
I think we're all 1 short of a 6pack at one time or another. I'm waiting for some parts too. Was out there at the creek last night...pulled my stock tranny for a summit dinky trade. Waiting on the summit tranny and a set of rovers. I'm SOL for now.

Yeah good times at the crick. Wanna check out mini hammers again as well. Anybody know if there's more to it than the incline by cheltenham(sp?) road? I walked up to the drainage ditch but that was it.

You said drainage ditch! Haven't been there yet... some guy ran the journey without me. We gotta hit alum rock park next trip.

Sweet video...looks like a challenging place to crawl also...bench test went great...feels stout and strong in the driveway anyway...want to find some rocks. I've done a lot of mods to this since my last crawl....if you get the chance check out the vanquish aluminum axel top thread...I think I'm famous in there

Thanks guys for adding spots, havn't been to some in a while so if any changes are found in any of them, feel free to post them. I'm gonna post another spot here tonight thanks to Gardenwelder. He found a row of large rocks with a few good lines on them just off Almaden Expy in the Guadalupe river. I checked out the spot with him the other day and it looks like if the river dies a bit more, you would be able to hit up more scale lines down there.

NAME: Guadalupe River at Almaden

WHERE: North bound Almaden Expressway and Wren Dr. San Jose, Ca.

HOW TO FIND: If you come from the south side, head north on Almaden Expy. and turn right on Wren Dr, which is like a mile before you hit Hwy 87. If you come from the north, you have to make a u-turn at Koch Ln and then turn rt on Wren Dr. Park right there as soon as you turn right. The no name park has some rock scattered along the paths. The large row of rocks in the back have a few good lines on them. The rest is unexplored and looks like it has potential for some scale if the river dies down and the brush gets cut. Good for comp rigs at the large rocks, you can find a few scale lines if you weave around them.

HISTORY: Looks like a new river restoration project. Lots of graffiti and it looks like kids party there at night.

Email me the pics. I can find the location and post the pics. Pm me for my email address. I'm trying to think of 237 and MCcarthy. Is it that jogging trail off to the right of 237 heading west?

Just read your WHOLE post. Ive seen that place many a times...never thought to go down there though.
