Excellent trail for biking, walking, and bird watching. Come when it is storming and listen to the wind - wear your rain coat!

Good trail for easy cycling. Be careful for pedestrians or runners with headphones once cycling. Too bad at the end of the trail at the bay the roads turn into dusty unpaved roads.

This trail is convenient for quick jogs and hikes when one does not have time to go to a more rustic trail. One can get to shoreline park on the trail from an access point close to downtown Mountain View and can also get on...More

Steven's creek trail has a very nice route to the bay (around 10k). Sometimes the paths are a bit narrow but most of the time either bikes and pedestrians have enough space. You should leave the trail before the sun goes down because there is...More

Love running or just walking on this trail. It is paved and easy to use with several entry points in Mtn View. Its great to enjoy the lovely sunshine and beautiful CA days on this trail.

Just across the road through the park it was my walking haven.A little patch of trees at their natural best collecting pine cones seeing enthusiastic cyclists and walkers made my morning.

This trail is a lovely spot, and follows what is currently a rushing creek. Eucalyptus trees, pine trees, birds and scenic bridges make it a pretty environment. (Unfortunately there is flooding in the area right now and part of the trail is closed, but that...More

Excellent running trail from Sunn yvale to Mtn View and then connect to the SF Bay Trail to head to all points north. What a gem! Water stops every 3 miles or so and I felt safe running from 6-25 miles alone.

Best to ride in the daylight. I have done this with my family for years. Love that they keep expanding it. If you take the dirt trail past the side of the bridge over the hwy 85, you will see another side of Mountain View....More

I really would not recommend letting your children run on this path. There's a lot of running and cycling traffic which may not be safe for them. On the other hand, there are plenty of parks that are adjacent to the path... More
