Recent Trail Reviews

Guadalupe River Trail

OK - Stay Alert

December, 2016 by satrijoe

50F Sunday 9AM in Early December - Went for a quick jog.

Entered the trail from Park Ave and went North (East side) - Trail was paved and signage was OK. At Coleman Ave had to exit the East side and switch to the West side.

Crossed paths with other runners and bikers. As some other reviewers mentioned, saw a number of homeless people in the underpasses. Didn't feel threatened but would not recommend anyone to be alone and in the dark. Just not worth it.

In general, saw a lot of homeless people in downtown San Jose.

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.

Crystal Springs Regional Trail

AWESOME!!

October, 2016 by cre8tvmnd

I ran here for the first time starting at the Sawyer Camp Trail entrance and absolutely loved it! I got there around 8:30am, which was perfect because parking gets crazy! The trail is scenic throughout and covers you from the sun from the most part. I will definitely be back!

Half Moon Bay Coastside Trail

Bike Rental Nearby

October, 2016 by jbwucher

We took our guests from Connecticut to Half Moon Bay, stopped at Bikeworks on Kelly Avenue to rent very nice bicycles at a reasonable price, and pedaled over to the trail. Perfect trail for easy cycling - mostly paved, level, great views, interesting bridges, and easy access to restaurants; Sam's Chowder House and Miramar Beach Restaurant are a couple. Trail is long enough to get a pleasant ride - not too long. Bring a windbreaker as the wind can be pretty strong off the ocean.

Los Gatos Creek Trail

Trail Etiquette

October, 2016 by lisamaristockdale

They only downfall about this trail is the amount of traffic and people on it with no sense of trail etiquette especially for bikers. We came across multiple people who were just stopped in the middle of the trail talking with no concept of their surroundings. Please step off the trail or take a seat at the bench if you would like to partake in social hour. Thanks.

Iron Horse Regional Trail

Great Trail for Medium to Long Rides

July, 2016 by pdc624

I have been riding this trail regularly since 2013. I have explored from the southern end in Pleasanton up to Walnut Creek. There is a great variety of scenery and many nice places to stop and take a break and or snack (Danville). Some sections can get quite windy (southern section) but overall this a great place to build your confidence on longer rides.
