For most of its length, the scenic Coyote Creek Trail meanders along its namesake creek south of the city of San Jose. South of Metcalf Road, an equestrian trail parallels the paved trail. A smaller northern section (about 2 miles) near Milpitas is gravel and connects to the Highway 237 Bikeway. The main southern segment (about 23 miles) is paved and provides access to several city and county parks. A 0.5-mile segment extends from E. William Street south to Woodborough Place through William Street and Selma Olinder parks.
Look for the public art along the Coyote Creek Trail including one work titled "Ripple Effect and Run River Run" between Montague Expressway and Tasman Drive. Restrooms and water are available at numerous locations, which are marked on the TrailLink map.
Just south of Metcalf Road, a stone marker, Tamienne Monument, sits at the geographical center of the Santa Clara Valley. "Santa Clara Valley" is etched into it in two languages: English and binary code, befitting the valley's shift from agriculture of the land to the "farming" of high technology.
Public transit is available to Coyote Creek Parkway. To plan your trip, visit the Valley Transportation Authority's website.
There are multiple access points for the Coyote Creek Trail, including Stonegate Park along Tuers Road or from the County's Hellyer Park. View the TrailLink map for all options and detailed directions.
