This is a great hiking trail. After you finish you will feel as though you got a good workout! It is also a good place to take your dog. During the summer be sure to go early in the morning or late afternoon as it gets hot! On holidays the trail can get crowded.

This pleasant trail is great for walking or bicycles. It extends from Los Gatos to Campbell mostly in the shade of trees. It is paved but does not have bathrooms along the trail. There are bathrooms in the Campbell Park and in Los Gatos (Starbucks)

nice trail for biking or going for a walk. Can get busy though on weekends. Fun to combine with a visit to the farmer's market on Sunday's.

I went in the late afternoon in the middle of the week. So calm and peaceful. Take a lunch and a drink and relax. There is a play ground if you have small children. If you are not going as a family, venture further into the park and find a quiet place. to go into the park, there is a... More

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
