Guadalupe River Trail

Good trail that is better to the north

April, 2018 by jwbarsness

Stayed at the Hilton on the south side of the trail and went north past the airport. It's a well maintained trail that follows the tiny Guadalupe river. If you can stay north of Julian St, you'll avoid sketchy-looking tent cities. I felt the run was perfectly safe and saw plenty of people throughout my run. I'd recommend it.

Delta de Anza Regional Trail

be careful of motorbikes (antioch)

March, 2018 by strohljared

BE CAREFUL on the part of the trail that connects Antioch to Oakley. There are guys riding motorbikes on the trail sometime. They usually stick to the hills but will come down to the trail. There are some incredibly blind turns and these guys are driving really fast. They WILL hurt someone or themselves one day.

I don't really enjoy this trail. I only use it for my convenience. In fact, I use this trail to get to the Marsh Creek Trail, which is awesome!

Guadalupe River Trail

Don't go south of the airport

March, 2018 by default_setting01

Parked off of Gold Street. I didn't feel good about leaving my car there. It's a pretty rough looking area. There was trash everywhere. Broken glass, mattresses, mufflers. Went for the ride anyway. First few miles were great. Trail was well maintained and smooth. Once I got south of the airport it all went, well, south. The underpasses were all full of homeless people. Occasionally some would be sitting on the edge of the trial. No issues, but I never felt safe. It really killed what would have been an otherwise pleasant ride. I won't be back.

NWP Railroad Trail

Great for dog walkers

March, 2018 by nknight98

Nice flat trail that is perfect for older dogs. Lots of garbage cans available along the way for dog poop.

Santa Cruz Riverwalk

Parking

February, 2018 by mdedina

There is free parking with easy access to the trail at PetSmart on River Street. While you’re there, take your dogs into PetSmart for some shopping. And there are restaurants with outdoor seating as well.

Stevens Creek Trail

Good trail

February, 2018 by david.belmares

This is a good trail, however unfortunately on the south end there is a short segment that is disconnected from the rest of the trail which starts again 5 miles to the north.

Highway 237 Bikeway

Not a trail to specifically go to, but..

February, 2018 by david.belmares

It's a decent connector path to get between the Bay Trail, the San Tomas Aquino Trail, and the Guadalupe River Trail.

Los Gatos Creek Trail

Great trail

February, 2018 by david.belmares

I love this trail, as do many other bikers. Going northbound is especially fun as it's a slow descent. And at the same time, going southbound is not hard either. If you live in Los Gatos or Campbell this trail is usually the best route for going places to the north or south.

One thing that could be improved (but isn't a huge deal breaker), is that the north end of the trail is not connected to the Guadalupe River trail and requires some street riding for a short distance (1 mile or so)

Guadalupe River Trail

Great trail, but...

January, 2018 by david.belmares

This trail is great. It's well maintained for the most part, has good signage, but going under Downtown San Jose on this route, there's lots of homeless living there, and lots of trash. But overall I'd give this trail 4 stars.

Stevens Creek Trail

Cupertino one is small trial - not for long distance

January, 2018 by vijkumrag

It is around 1.25 miles stretch. Good for kids and for small stroll.. if looking for long distance, forget about this.

Napa Valley Vine Trail

napa section rough

December, 2017 by flatcoatfun

I only rated it this high as I only saw a very small section. We walked from 3rd street south to Imola. this is a rough area. no lights along the trail it runs between the river and the railroad tracks. lots of homeless camping. such a shame as the trail is a nice wide trail in good shape.

Ohlone Greenway

Improves Community

November, 2017 by mhdlfa1

The start of the trail in Berkeley leaves much to be desired. A clean up and improvements to update the trail for overall safety and as a community attraction is needed. Better signage should be mandatory. Almost gave this trail a 3 star rating but soon as you are in the Albany/El Cerrito areas the environment is different in a very good way - well maintained, clean, no vagrants ( I rode the trail midday on a Sunday) , used by pedestrians & cyclists. Evidently enjoyed by the community. Being right next to BART is a plus - helpful for commuters and cyclists wanting to explore other areas.
