I use this trail to run or take walks with friends. I feel safe even if by myself, you'll always see others on it. Good for biking, walking or running.

We stopped for a little while to have a picnic. It was okay, but nothing special. The access to the water was down quite a bit. Essentially it's a dammed creek with minimal shoreline plants or access. We had FREE access with our handicap placard. Otherwise the fee would never have been worth it. Besides that, it's hard to find... More

The LG Creek Trail is good for walking especially if you are a woman and enjoy the security of being able to walk in a very safe environment. The LGCT gets very busy on the weekends, but is still a great place to walk off those extra pounds or just take a quiet walk through the trail.

This is where my kids learned to ride. It is friendly, flat and shaded in many places. Excellent for running because of the scenery and length.

Lots of beautiful trails. My wife and her friends frequently take the main trail which goes up into the mountains, past the Lexington dam and beck to downtown Los Gatos. They always feel safe (though there are some mountain lions up there). You can mountain bike all the way up to the top for a great view and fun ride... More

Get out of the city and take a local hike in the foothills of Los Gatos, or along the Campbell Creek Trail. Good for dogs on leashes, bikers, hikers, and children.

Relatively flat. Great scenery of water birds and green banks. Well marked. Lots of people on week days. Almost too dense (but not really) on weekends.

This trail is great for bikers, walkers and joggers alike. It traverses from San Jose all the way though the woods on a paved trail to Los Gatos. The scenery is great, and whether you like a challenging ride, or just to meander with friends, there is enough for everyone.

I walk here often with my friends. It is an easy walk where ever you enter the trail. Usually always see "wild life" of some sort. One thing I don't enjoy are the cyclists who sometimes "speed" along the trail and pass without ringing their bike bells or verbally letting you know they are about to pass.
