I live here and I used this trail for biking. It has so much you can do with your family and kids. It's beautiful and relaxing.

“Great Trail through the South Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2013

This trail has been preserved by San Jose, Campbell and Los Gatos instead of allowing building up to the creek. It was a great idea, as the trail is heavily used and for good reason. It is a pretty, somewhat shaded, paved trail great for biking, running, or just going for a stroll. We rode from Campbell to Los Gatos for lunch and back, which is around 4 miles each way. You pass through lovely parks, a carousel and train for children, and a fishing pond. It really is a pretty ride. The only downfall is the freeway noise that somewhat takes away from the beauty, but hey- the suburbs of the South Bay are still hustling, even when you're out enjoying nature;)

“A moderate hike great for All Levels..Lots of Variety”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2013

This trail is really good for all levels and offers many options to make it long, short, easy-going or strenuous. We are avid hikers, but had just come from Big Sur and were hiking with a group of friends at various fitness levels. Estimated 6 miles roundtrip with a 1500 elevation gain. Some were able to trail run, walk or hike and about half the hike was shaded. Good for all!!

“Great place to walk the dog”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2013

I usually like to take a walk early, before there's a lot of bikes on the trail. It does get busy during peak hours and some of the trail is very narrow, like under the 17 overpass.

“Love it! Great healthy fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2013

I love jogging or biking this trail. It takes you all the way from Campbell to Los Gatos. There are parks and ponds next to it and the creek is also a great thing to see. Pets are allowed and the people you meet are very kind.
