Owner description: Paved trail great for running: cuts through parks, ponds, and downtown Los Gatos.

Unless you have to go somewhere along the trail, its pretty boring and there is lots of garbage and dog poo. Sometimes gangs hang out at the entrances, and during the summer, kids jump the fence and go fishing every afternoon, even tho it is illegal. The wildlife, like the ducks, are constantly disturbed by teenagers, and don't stick around. The homeless live inder the bridges at the freeways, and down by the creek, and the grafiti and shopping carts are always visible. The fences are broken down for months now, and nobody to repair them. Its a place where you can do whatever you want to.

I hiked this trail for years and every time I am back for a visit, it is a MUST DO. It is a great 4-5 mile hike. Then down the hill to have a great breakfast or lunch in the town of Los Gatos.

You can walk from the town of Los Gatos all the way to Vasona Lake Park. The trail is paved and off-road and follows a small creek that has pleasant vegetation. A great urban get-away.

Me and my wife go here once a month with our dog. everyone on the train are normally very friendly, many other dogs on the trail. And after you can have a nice lunch at one of the many restaurants in downtown.

Everyone loves this trail. It is pretty and paved, BUT it's right next to the freeway!! How can you enjoy the scenery when you have to hear that constant hum of the freeway as you try to stop and smell the flowers??? So you can see, I don't go there much. When my friends ask I always direct them to the Los Alamitos Creek trail which really is LOVELY. It's along the creek, tons of trees and wildlife, there are exercise stops, shade in lots of places, and it's QUIET. It's also paved and so much BETTER. So, that's my take on the los gatos creek trail: no matter how far you go, the freeway is right there!
