Climbing Novitiate Trail

Trail Thoughts and Musings

Although the ascent is steep, the trail is well graded and as the vegetation thins, views open up all around you. The Jesuits first lived atop St. Joseph's Hill and this is perhaps how the trail obtained its name. Much of the land beyond the fence still belongs to the Jesuits which still maintain a presence in Los Gatos.
