Lands End Trail

Wileyk

October, 2019 by wkitchell5

Easy walk with stunning views of the GG bridge and the entrance to SF Bay. I’ve been visiting SF all my life; why I never heard about this walk until a child told me of it is a total mystery.

Pacheco Hill Path

Critical commute path but not for recreation

September, 2019 by davidfiol

This is for commuters, not appropriate for a family ride.

Santa Rosa Creek Trail

Unexpected treasure

Well kept wild nature

Matadero Creek Trail

Nice short hill walk

September, 2019 by eshikada

I parked at the south end on roadside. Nice short walk if you’re looking for a hilly route. Lots of cattails on southern stretch.

Sir Francis Drake Bikeway (Cross Marin Trail)

Nice walking trail

August, 2019 by cpujock

We walked the section between shafter bridge and Samuel P Tayler campground. There was plenty of parking when we pulled in around 10am but there were several cars waiting when we got back around noon. The trail to the campground is gravel and flat. Nice simple path for easy biking. I wouldn’t do it with a road bike but a city bike or something with larger tires would be fine. Walking was also nice. The other nice feature are the restrooms near the campground.

Elk Grove Creek Trail

super cool!

August, 2019 by amberpm2002

Definitely a cool trail. Goes over the freeway with its own bridge, shady, good path across town!

Crystal Springs Regional Trail

TT/Triathlon Bike Ride North Trailhead Sawyer Camp Trail - Intersection of 35/92

July, 2019 by djschap7

So obviously I'm not from around here. A transplant from DC where the traffic is much worse and so is every driver (skill/courtesy) in the Capital Region.

I did several laps starting at the North Trailhead Sawyer Camp Trail (vicinity E. Hillcrest Blvd) down to the Intersection of Skyline Blvd & 35/92 and back. Most everyone was courteous and aware, which is a plus and something alien for me (DC trails are notorious for self-absorbed, totally unaware, and rather rude walker, joggers, cyclists, et al (EXCEPT Indianhead Trail in MD - an AWESOME rail-to-trail to clock in 26 mile laps if you're preparing for long-distance rides).

That said, the volume of folks on the trail, combined with the twisty-turny route (fun but not if you're supposed to be down in the aerobars) is probably not the best place to put miles on the saddle if you're training for distance cycling (sic Ironman) on a TT/triathlon bike... but road bike, mountain, or cyclo-cross sport bike would be preferred.

The trail surface varies from smooth paved, to a slightly ribbed potions that aren't that bad. Uh, at least 6 bathrooms (clean with good locks). I didn't see (wasn't really looking for) any water stations. It's somewhat hilly but not a lung-buster. Lot's of free speed (downhills) and even the false flats any momentum can be maintained.

The scenery is great and whatever flowers were blooming were a good offset to my odor-de-triathlete. Lots of tree canopy cover and a nice breeze to keep cool. One rather large deer crossed my path... good thing to keep at least one hand on the brakes.

All in all, a great place to road/mountain bike = five stars (three stars if you're riding a Tri-bike =)

Los Gatos Creek Trail

my all-time favorite trail

May, 2019 by almaden_hiker_1970

I literally grew up on this trail, back when it was unpaved, and was just some weird, seldom-used backwater ie., prior to the early 1980s or thereabouts, at which point it started getting much more developed & popular. I have seen (quite large!) blue herons on (or adjacent) to this trail many times, and in 1995, I once saw a bobcat (at night, between Vasona dam and Lark Avenue). There are many turtles, and about 40 years ago, I once saw a Northern Pike (just behind Vasona dam). I've witnessed scores of salmon spawning at the Camden Avenue dam.

Bear Creek Trail (CA)

Tranquil 8 mile ride

May, 2019 by cynwoodty

I’m making this my favorite local bike path. It’s quiet, clean for the most part, and it’s long enough to get a good ride in.

California Coastal Trail (Half Moon Bay Coastside Trail)

Scenic, Safe, Superb!

April, 2019 by jp2413

Gorgeous day in Half Moon Bay - what a terrific opportunity to explore this trail! It appears that many enjoy its wonders as well...pretty remarkable, considering this is the middle of the week! There were walkers, bikers, and dogs on the path - everyone was very respectful of passing each other and sharing the width of the path.

Nice to have the ocean 'on your shoulder' as you move up and down the path, as well as seeing all the wildlife - hawks, herons, rabbits to name a few!

Santa Rosa Creek Trail

a very nice, clean, well-maintained trail, meandering along the creek and alongside vineyards. a few homeless people. all in all, a very enjoyable ride!
