Coyote Creek Trail (San Jose)

Very good for families, runners, bicycles, horses and not too crowded usually

June, 2018 by jimhaughey51

Someone needs to maintain the event calendar--it says no events, but there was an organised marathon last weekend. There were tons of runners--it's safe, paved, etc. It would be nice to get one or two additional locations for restroom/water. I've been using this trail for 30 years, and it's nice to see that it gets appreciated by regular use (which also keeps it safe!)

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.

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.

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.

Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail

Camping on the coast

September, 2017 by edfratus

I was traveling north on Highway 1 when my artist's eye led me down to the beach. The beauty of the white sand beach and wind swept trees prompted me to pitch my tent and make a painting. It is truly a beautiful place and urge people to come see this place themselves.

Alameda Creek Regional Trail

biked 23 miles

August, 2017 by raj_tiru

This is a well maintained trail, great for biking and running. Although the mile points are not that clear on the trail, a gps device can give you good estimation of the distance. You will see lots of birds, and probably other wild life.

Guadalupe River Trail

Did the south portion

August, 2017 by bekahjoy.medina

Great for an evening run. The river/creek is full this time of year I guess. Tons of people out walking dogs and riding bikes. It is still light out even at 8:30pm. No homeless on this section of trail.
