5.5/10. Some parts were rocky and smelly.

Los Gatos Creek Trail

Great Trail, but crowded

September, 2020 by dangelo0909

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.

California Coastal Trail (Half Moon Bay Coastside Trail)

Beautiful Ride

September, 2020 by nnowakowski

My husband and I began our bike ride at Pillar Point Harbor and we were lucky to find parking since it was Labor Day weekend. It’s such a beautiful trail along the coast. Lots great picture opportunities. The trail ends at the Ritz Carlton, but we continued on a little further which connects to the Cowell Purisma Trail. It’s an easy bike ride.

Ohlone Greenway

Mostly good for roller skating, but the start leaves a lot to be desired

September, 2020 by lilly.arvanites

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.

Marsh Creek Trail

Different types of trail along the way

August, 2020 by ecvalen878

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.

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.

Stevens Creek Trail

nice trail

June, 2020 by conor.mcclune

Lots of trees, nice trail for biking and running

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
