Alameda Creek Regional Trail Description

The Alameda Creek Regional Trail runs from the mouth of Niles Canyon in Fremont to the San Francisco Bay, allowing recreational access to the levees on both sides of Alameda Creek and its flood control channel. The trail on each side of the creek is roughly 12 miles long. The south side is paved and favored by cyclists, while the north side is unpaved and open to equestrian users. Both sides traverse densely-populated areas and are heavily used.

A portion of the Alameda Creek Regional Trail is also a significant component of the San Francisco Bay Trail, a developing effort to create a 500-mile multiuse trail encircling its namesake bay.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Alameda Creek Regional Trail is available at its eastern end at the Niles Staging Area on Old Canyon Road in Fremont. Additional parking can be found in Fremont at the Isherwood Staging Area on Isherwood Way and the Beard Staging Area on Beard Road, with parking in Union City available at the Alameda Creek Staging Area on Eastin Drive.

Alameda Creek Regional Trail Reviews

biked 23 miles

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.

Ideal for children

Six Mike round trip on North shore of the creek was a perfect experience with my 9 year old daughter. Flat, no traffic, lots of birds, and a picnic table at the end of the road.

Alameda Creak Trail

This is a nice flat, completely paved trail. The trees have made some bumps but it's nothing to worry about. You'll never need to worry about cars either which is nice for the novice bike rider. I've ridden this trail numerous times and really enjoy it. There can be a pretty decent wind once you get out towards the bay though.
