Los Alamitos Creek Trail Description

The Los Alamitos Creek Trail runs along its namesake creek between McKean Road and Almaden Lake Park, where the trail is also known as the Lake Almaden Trail. From its southern endpoint to Camden Avenue, where the trail meets the eastward-heading Calero Creek Trail, the Los Alamitos Creek Trail runs along both sides of the creek.

North of Camden Avenue, the trail passes through a series of parks in a green space corridor among neighborhoods and business districts. In Almaden Lake Park, the trail follows the edge of the picturesque lake, which is open for swimming. Seamlessly pick up the Guadalupe River Trail at Coleman Road to continue your journey even farther north.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Almaden Lake Park off Winfield Boulevard and Almaden Expressway. You can access the trail from any of the streets it intersects and from some of the adjacent neighborhoods, though no other official parking sites exist.

Los Alamitos Creek Trail Reviews

This web site trial desc. is incomplete. The trail actually starts at the West dead end of Chynoweth Ave. San Jose Ca. The paved trail heads due South from this point and continues as the Los Alamitos Creek Trail. The trail is in very good condition thanks to the Santa Clara Valley Water District and gains in altitude by approx 175' over the length of the trail. Quail, hawks, vultures, rabbits, snakes, ducks and pooping non-native good for nothing canadian geese can be seen on the trail.
