Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail

Camping on the coast

September, 2017 by edfratus

I was traveling north on Highway 1 when my artist's eye led me down to the beach. The beauty of the white sand beach and wind swept trees prompted me to pitch my tent and make a painting. It is truly a beautiful place and urge people to come see this place themselves.

Coyote Creek Trail (San Jose)

Coyote Creek - Safety

April, 2017 by ravigai

I have been using the trail between Heller Park to Anderson lake for a few years now. This stretch (15 miles of it) is very safe, you can see families biking/running/walking. Trail is shaded and beautiful, you can spot deer regularly. With Coyote creek itself flowing with with lots of water - the trails is amazingly beautiful.

Coyote Creek Trail (San Jose)

Police suggested a different trail

March, 2017 by vdavis2008z

I headed to this trail this past weekend based on the reviews that it was the nicer and safer trail in the area. I arrived at the trail head to find police activity. They were encouraging a number of homeless to move on. I asked if it was safe to run, and they said it probably would be if I stayed alert, but they recommended another trail that they felt would be safer. They encouraged me to go to Las Gatos Creek trail instead.

Coyote Creek Trail (San Jose)

Northern Section is paved

November, 2016 by wastedoncemore

I ran on the northern section while visiting the area on business. The trail is flat, paved, and quite nice. I saw some geese and a crane around the trail. The trail had squished snails and geese poop, but not an overwhelming amount. Seems like the trail could be extended further,but it's nice for its small section.

Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail

Very Crowded but Beautiful

February, 2016 by leatherpounder

I parked in Sand City to start my ride, I used the Costco parking lot, I wouldn't do that again. Instead I would start near Lovers Point, there is lots of free parking either along the road or various pullouts just past it, then head back towards monterey. The most spectacular part of the ride was heading south along the road with a great bike lane all the way to Pebble beach and 17 mile drive. The Ocean views are breathtaking!!

Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail

Better than anything SoCal has....

October, 2015 by piloti951

This bike ride blows away anything down in SoCal, by a long shot. The views are simply stunning, from end to end. My ride began in Marina, CA at Reservation Road. Once you cross the fence just under Highway 1....the fun begins. Heading south through rolling sand dunes, I saw very little to no mid-morning foot or bike traffic, until I reached the Seaside/Monterey boundary, at Dennis the Menace Park. Lots of shade and room to stop and take-in the fresh coastal breeze. The trail continues just behind crowded Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row. The wide, double-lanes makes it easy to pass and avoid the obvious foot tourists. The trail technically "ends" in Pacific Grove, at Lover's Point - but I continued on the road, via Ocean View Blvd, to Asilomar(Sunset Drive).

West Cliff Drive Bicycle Path

I would use this trail quite often if I lived here

August, 2015 by lgiroux

I am using these trails for power walks and this was very nice. Just the right length. It was not as well marked as I had expected though very easy to figure out. Mostly runners and walkers, seemed a bit too crowded with foot traffic to be really enjoyable for bikes. I am not from the area so was surprised at the cool breeze but that just made me walk faster:)

Coyote Creek Trail (San Jose)

Great Trail

July, 2015 by cflores59

Comfortably uncrowded and sufficiently shady for a weekday morning at the end of July. We only did a 2 mile stretch, but it was gorgeous, totally paved, pretty much flat. I look forward to coming back again next week. I last did this trail 30 years ago! Then it was narrow and unpaved.

Coyote Creek Trail (San Jose)

wonderful resource

July, 2015 by dfarmer1584

First, this trail is NOT disconnected, as a previous review claims. It has an occasional awkward link, but those are few and far between. I rode this trail from end to end and back today. It was a great ride. Of course, it is not perfect. There is an occasional rough patch that may rattle the rider at speed, but it is still great. You can't "race" through the more heavily used sections of the trail. The 15mph limit is reasonable when you are sharing with joggers and family hikers; but, for the long distance riders, you will have many miles to yourself, and you can (carefully) get up some speed. This trail is a wonderful resourse! For several years I biked from Gilroy to SJ using Santa Teresa or Monterey, dodging and battling moron motorists for 25 miles. Then, hallelujah! I discovered this trail! Using the Coyote Creek Trail, a cyclist can travel from South County to SJ in unmolested peace. And the scenery is nice too!

Coyote Creek Trail (San Jose)

Great trail

April, 2015 by kgoswami

We drive to Eagle View Drive and do the trail from that end with our two kids (8 and 11). It's not disconnected. The sites are wonderful. It's mostly flat and fully paved and we were able to do about 10mi round trip with the kids and they simply loved it. No traffic and wide path. Nothing to worry about. There is a restroom right at the beginning where you park the car.
