Great trail for training long distance riding. Would take BART from SF to Dublin and start my trail ride there up to the end in Concord near Martinez. My round trip on this trail included stops for food in the very accessible markets and restaurants along the route. Riding through different towns makes the ride more interesting and gives a cyclist the feeling of safety. Well planned trail. Wish it would extend in either direction.
Had a nice relaxing ride along the trail in May. Weather was sunny but pleasant. The trail description is accurate: the trail follows Dry Creek, which had water after the Winter's heavy rains. The trail passes through several parks, as well as oak trees and grassland. We saw several people walking and biking on the trail, but it was not nearly as crowded as the Crystal Springs Trail. Recommended for Spring and Fall and possibly Winter, if it's not raining. Can be very hot in the Summer.
Nice calm cool day for a ride this morning, a few dips and curves beautiful scenery that was mountain and a meadow like. Good for my son and I to try out as we are both not used to long rides yet but hope to continue to learn and gather more experience while enjoying some nature.
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.
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.
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.
Road north from Concord Avenue up to Brentwood Boulevard. Trail was flat and very well maintained and clean. Only once was there any question about which way it went and we found it very quickly. Was surprisingly deserted on a late Saturday afternoon. The trail parallels the Creek and passes some fields and parks as well as the backs of houses. There were some underpasses and some places where we had to cross a road, but car traffic was light. I look forward to riding Marsh Creek Trail all the way up to Big Break.
If you want your wheels chewed up by the jagged rock, be my guest. My husband and I ended up skating around town because it was much smoother!!
Easy and convenient
My family and I rode our bikes the complete trail on Sat. and enjoyed it so much went back next day to ride and walk our dogs. Everyone there on trail very friendly and doing their thing for exercise and fun. I really enjoyed the dirt trails close to the river. Its a great place to spend your time.
We went on a 5 mile run this morning. It was a nice trail with 75% of it having a river view which was nice! However, there is absolutely no shade so I suggest sunscreen and being done by 11am especially in the summer.
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.
