I live just a few blocks away from the trail and it is one of my favorite things to do in town! it is usually busy on the weekends, but that makes it fun. If you want a more peaceful time, during the week may be a better option

This trail is literally across the street from my house. Its clean and had a nice path roomy enough for both bikers and walkers. I wish it was a little more shaded, buts its still a really nice trail.

Great trails and options here with elevation and distance choices, some shade, a lot of people and dog friendly (bags provided at LG Bridge juncture).

I took my kids here during our trip from NY. It is a nice, cute park. Good for an afternoon walk. There are also some BBQ areas and saw many people grilling and enjoying.

Here is the path that I believe rates an excellent: - Park in downtown Los Gatos, near the Apple Store / La Boulange area. - Walk towards the overpass for Hwy 17. - Pass the overpass, and if you turn immediately right, you will be on Los Gatos Creek Trail. Rather than turning right, keep going straight. - Instead turn... More

Parts of the trail were extremely pretty and nice (I.e. The park where the mini train for kids was, a cute pond with paddle boats for rent, nice picnic tables for a picnic lunch). However, other areas were very dry due to the drought/ summer weather. Not the best summer adventure if in search of a scenic bike ride.

The trail is a great place to get in a hike, walk, run or bike ride. It's great for all fitness levels. It is a two way paved trail with a yellow stripe down the middle. Most people are courteous, those on bicycles generally say " on your left " as they pass you. It's pretty flat and some of... More

People are usually polite and share the road. Very pleasant place to walk, jog or ride a bike. I wish i lived closer. I'd go more if i didn't have to drive to get there.

Whenever I get some time during weekend, I love to go to this trail and walk all the way upto Vasona park.. Even during very hot days, this trail remains reasonably cool. One can easily make the round trip in about 1-1.5 hours and it gives a good deal of exercise as well as fun watching the water flow through... More

You don't have to go far to feel like you are in the country with a walk or bike ride along the Los Gatos Creek Trail. The trail runs from the damn at Lexington to the park near downtown Campbell. There are many exits and places to enter the trail as you walk, bike, or run. The section from the... More
