Stevens Creek Trail

Easy and nice

July, 2020 by njps4uk

This is an easy trail and is very pleasant.

Ygnacio Canal Trail

Trail Map needs updating...Can't go through Golf Course!!

July, 2020 by gdavis3000

Tried this trail, but ended in disaster. Starting at the "Heather Park" end, after crossing Marchbanks Rd, I encountered Diablo Hills Golf Course. Map routes through the golf course to Kinross Dr, but once I entered the green, I was "politely" chased away by a lady in a golf cart yelling, "You can't be here... this is private property... you could be killed" (assume she meant by a line-drive).

When you get to Marchbanks Dr, turn left, go down to Ygnacio, hang a right, then pick up the trail.

Iron Horse Regional Trail

Great trail for running, walking and bike riding.

June, 2020 by fabkillian

Lots of families, bike riders and people on parts of the trail through out the day. Lots of places to stop for restroom, food, etc. Safe for single riders.

Guadalupe River Trail

0 and 5

June, 2020 by edward.lambert

O for trail from Virginia St to San Fernando very poorly marked and in some cases dead ends forcing you to take bike up stairs. North to Alviso was great. Spots with lots of homeless encampments but only filthy areas were south. Will never ride it again south of San Fernando

Cross Alameda Trail

Flat, open space, decent

June, 2020 by alexisohagan

Separate but adjacent trails for bikes and pedestrians. Sandy gravel and asphalt. Next to a multi-lane, high-traffic street. Some young trees planted along the route, but less green than many trails. Largely flanked by dried grass. Best for family bike outings or an easy stroll.

Bol Park Path

Popular trail

May, 2020 by yukomasuda39

Well maintained, good for inline skating with some bridges with a bit rough surface. Relatively crowded with joggers and strollers.

Aquatic Park Trail

good for a flat 2-mile walk

March, 2020 by kristy.sidlar

I wasn’t in the mood for hills today and thought this would fit the bill. It was the perfect effort and distance. I didn’t love being so close to the freeway but there was a lot of nature and beauty to distract me.

Corte Madera Creek Path

great for bikes and walking/running, uneven for inline skating

February, 2020 by recoveringsupermom

I started inline skating at Ross (very bumpy start in the parking lot makes for an uncomfortable start). It was smooth sailing, even over the first wooden bridge, until college of marin’s parking lot. The pavement hasn’t been kept up, so it’s pretty bumpy, enough for me to want to go around it next to the trailers until I reached the stree. After crossing it was ok until the second wooden bridge which only Has splintery guard rails. Then it is increasingly bumpy until about the middle school. I turned around there, only Got Half the workout i hoped for.

Aquatic Park Trail

beautiful but sections need repaved

January, 2020 by chad.selph

Huge sections of the asphalt are completely broken down, would be a great trail if they fixed this!
