|California 130 – The road to Mt. Hamilton|
Mt Hamilton is one of the tallest mountains on the Diablo Range in California. California State Route 130 is the road that will take you from San Jose to the top of the mountain, which is also the home of Lick Observatory. The scenic drive has several sights to show: rolling mountains, grazing cattle, loads of wild flowers on either sides of the road (if it is Spring) and a bird’s eye view of Silicon Valley.
Best time to do this drive – In the Spring
