“Pedaling is perfect on well maintained trails.”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

While I am definitely a road user in both my vehicles (Doublevision and motor car), these segregated bike routes are nice because of the lack of motor vehicles. However, they are mixed use trails, and it can get a bit hazardous because joggers, walkers, and a multitude of other bicycle operators seek these alternative routes as well. It was not as crowded as the Shoreline Trail in Chicago or the beach trail in LA (such congested trails are definitely hazardous) but then I was either pedaling solo during early am darkness or with family during a non-workday. When trail users co-operate, pedaling is a pleasure, especially when I don't have the added concern of a massive (motor)vehicle "sharing" the lane with me!

“Very nice green trail”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

Very peaceful, very green, perfect for running and walking. It can take you from E.ElCamino towards Castro (actually it runs parallel to it but in the middle of it, you are closer to downtown Mountain view area)

“For distance runners, a must do for great training runs!”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

I regularly run Stevens Creek Trail as it winds south from Mountain View to the bay. There are hills, flat areas, and windy areas to simulate varied running conditions during a race. There are drinking fountains and places to rest along the route and you can easily run a 1/2 marathon round trip on this route.

“Just Do It”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

This is an ongoing project for the area. The Stevens Creek/Hetch-Hetchy trail makes for great jogging, walks, and bike riding. Warning: between 5:00 & 6:00 pm Google employees and other tech in this area use it as their own personal bike freeway. Riding at dangerous and unacceptable speeds for a public path. I have seen all sorts of near misses between moms/with strollers vs. bike commuter and a couple crashes between leasure bikers and bike commuters. Warning:If you are visiting from the UK and are use to walking on the left, Be Very Alert. It is beautiful to walk out to the Baylands. Go at non commute hours. I ride this path all the time and highly recommend it. In all these tech parks, there is some beauty. You will even see ducks in the "creek" and other small wildlife. Do not walk the trail after dark. nuf said.

“The great outdoors in an urban environment”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Stevens Creek Trail is not only a great bike commute corridor, but a wonderful way to experience the great outdoors. There is plenty of wild life as you walk or bike along the scenic creek
