Yeah there are a lot of small orchards but I havent seen any as large  
as the one along Coyote Rd, there are some remnants of plum trees and  
walnuts along the trail however.

The one I shot in was if you were to turn on Coyote Rd from Blossom  
Hill instead of continuing onto Silver Creek Rd.

It's too bad they cut the trail short at Morgan Hill, I used to ride  
my bike down to Gilroy along the creek and lakes, but now there  
housing developments etc that they put in the way.
