Love this trail by the Los Gatos creek and downtown hub of activity. Access to parking on the street is easy. Lots of shade for ‘no fun lovers’ Connects to another of my favorite trails in the area - Josephs Trail.

I’ve spent the whole afternoon in this place. The lake is really beautiful as well as the surrounding. The landscaping and the trails are triggers for a walk around.
