Welcome to Los Gatos Mountain Community

“So beautiful that often I am embarrassed to be living here” - John Steinbeck

The Los Gatos Mountain community is one of the most beautiful and sought-after mountain communities within the state of California. Known for properties offering immediate access to hiking, biking, and running trails, the Los Gatos Mountain Community also offers residents expansive views looking over Silicon Valley or beautiful vistas of the communities’ namesake. The mountain community also provides something that many California communities do not: peace and quiet. Along with that are some of the most sought-after schools in the state, like Loma Prieta Elementary and Los Gatos High School. Surrounded by green spaces and parks, Los Gatos has several locations for recreation during the summer, winter, and spring months. Those commuting daily to Cupertino or surrounding communities in Silicon Valley will find the proximity of the Los Gatos Mountain Community extremely appealing. Especially those that community daily via CA-17 N. 

The Los Gatos Mountain community is primarily residential, with beautiful homes often hidden to ensure privacy. However, nothing can compare to the vibrant mountain community experience Los Gatos instills with Mountain Jam, Volunteer Fire and Rescue BBQ, and the always famous Theatre In the Mountains. For those who love outdoor activities, the Los Gatos Mountains offer substantial outdoor trails — like the Bear Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve — to keep everyone in the family healthy and active. Lexington Reservoir County Park, located north of many Los Gatos Mountain homes, is an excellent place to relax and take in the unbelievable beauty the Los Gatos Mountains offer.

What to Love

  • Beautiful mountain views offering stunning sunrises and sunsets
  • Summit House Beer Garden situated atop the Santa Cruz mountains

Located roughly 35 miles southwest of Silicon Valley and about 65 miles south of San Francisco, the Los Gatos Mountain Community resides in the Santa Cruz County district. It is one of the coastline's most luxurious and in-demand areas to live in. Residents of the Los Gatos Mountain community have access to expansive trail networks for various outdoor activities and a farmers market in the neighboring Los Gatos Community. The surrounding mountain tops also offer refuge from the extreme hustle and bustle of Silicon Valley. Although the Los Gatos Mountain community removes itself from the city's fast-paced life, places like the Redwood Estates Store and Post Office offer a sense of community in the mountains. Area residents are also close to some of the area's top wineries, organic produce, and restaurants, like The Cats, The Summit Store, and Nonno's Italian Cafe.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Dining and Entertainment options are abundant in the Los Gatos Mountain Community. Residents are close to any one of the 70 wineries in the Santa Cruz region. However, if they would rather stay close to home, the Summit Store is an excellent place to shop or grab a quick bite to eat. The Theatre in The Mountains serves as an excellent destination for entertainment, especially for those with children who aspire to perform. The Santa Cruz Mountain Jam is an incredible event that builds self-esteem and fosters community growth, particularly for those with children. Although resident privacy is a top priority for the Los Gatos Mountain Community, there is also a significant emphasis on building neighborly relationships, especially with community events like the Loma Prieta Fire and Rescue BBQ, which the Loma Prieta Fire Department hosts. There are plenty of dining, entertainment, and shopping options within the Los Gatos Mountain Community.

Things to Do

Nestled in the Santa Cruz mountains, residents have the freedom to explore the nearby forests and open space parks as they please. For those who love wine, Los Gatos is near many great wineries in the Santa Cruz region, one of the most popular in the United States. If a night out is what residents are looking for, The Cats serves as a great option for great food, easy going atmosphere, saloon drinks, and eats. School events are also extremely popular in the Los Gato Mountain Community.


Many Los Gatos Mountain Schools falls under Loma Prieta Joint Union School District or Union School District.
