Was hoping to find a trail that was smooth, medium fast to fast. This trail is more suited to bring your family out and cruise. The trail has very short sections before coming to intersections were you have to stop for traffic many times. Also, the trail is not in the best of shape. There are areas where the bushes encroach the trail and the pavement is bumpy. One section I had to stop and check my tires for goathead thrones. Would not recommend this trail if your looking to log miles on your road bike. Again, nice trail to put-put around with your family. I rode it on a Sunday and only saw a few people on it.
I have been riding the trail for almost 4 years. It used to be my go to to get conditioning on my bike. I have put on over 4,000 miles since 2017, 3,000 on this trail. I love it. Most everyone is great, however, there is a major issue with people not picking up after their pets. The city provides doggie bags, it’s beyond me why people aren’t more respectful of this beautiful trail.
My husband and I biked from MetCalf Park going south to the end of the trail by Morgan Hill, it’s about 10 miles each way. We enjoyed the ride very much because it is easy, less crowded, beautiful scenery and nó homeless.
Mostly easy to moderate. The last hill is fairly steep, but it is the only way you will see the 360 degree view, up the very short dirt trail above the end of the asphalt path!
Not really a bad trail, no benches, restrooms or water, the last time I rode it there were so many homeless tents one after another you could walk on them and never touch the ground! you are right next to the river unlike the main bike trail though so it may be a good way to see tons of boats on the river on the 4th of July!
The only shade is from mosquitoes, there was no water, restrooms or benches, just call it a different view of the bypass with plenty of noise from the freeway, I turned back towards Sacramento about as soon as I crossed the bypass, my brother went into Davis, I think most of the riders that use it live in Davis and I guess it gets used by commuters, do not expect it to be nice as the American River Bike Trail...
Nice short trail through the Levi’s stadium
5.5/10. Some parts were rocky and smelly.
We visit this area from Florida and recently discovered this trail. We love to bike this trail except for the underpass at the San Tomas Expwy. It is too narrow and more than once I have been forced into the fence or the wall by bicyclists who do not seem to care about other riders or hikers. The trail is more crowded than we like, but it is a nice ride along the creek and through the parks along the way.
This is one of the best trails to roller skate in the Berkeley area, but lord if it isn’t tough the first half of the trail before you get to Albany—the pavement leaves a LOT to be desired, particularly by the westbrae nursery, and there’s ADA bumps/crosswalks every few hundred feet. However, I’ve found the last 3 miles or so are good for roller skating if you can endure the first part, and it’s easy to skate over/around the ADA bumps in the road.
One end of the trail is near our house. We have the tree lined area, which is nice in summer. We have done other parts of the trail which are more open. Different parts of the year you can see Salmon spawning, after Halloween around Delta Road part of the trail.
I parked the north end point, at the Nimbus Fish hatchery. There are 2 parking lots, the first has a timed gate that closes at 3 pm. The second, just the next parking lot, driving west, sign said Regional II, was open, no gate. There are no signs to the canal. I spoke with another biker who gave me the direction from the parking lot. Proceed west 2 blocks residential area to the stop light. Turn left, you will then see the canal with entrance on the right. There are mileage signs till mile 13. Thinking this was 15 miles trail, I kept going climbing thru the gate at Sloughouse, mile 13.9. I should not have. There are no mileage marker, there are difficult to see small markers on the asphalt. The canal trail soon ends anyway. The Park n Ride lot on Hwy. 16 can be used as a south starting point.
