The canal trails, there are a few, are great places to walk yourself, with a friend, run, hike, walk with a baby in a stroller or with a dog. The scenery in each one is different. Walking down the trail takes you away from the...More

Love to go for my bike ride on this quiet trail. Quiet and away from streets with pleasant views to enhance your ride.

I love running this trail. It's quiet, most people are friendly, and there are so many options to avoid repetitiveness. It meets up with the iron horse if you really want to push the mileage.

I used to live 8 blocks from one of the entrances to this trail. The path can take you to many places around the East Bay. Walnut Creek, Pleasant Hill, Danville and more can be reached on this trail.

One of my favorite trails. Plenty to see along the way. Flowers, birds, ducks, squirrels, snakes, did I miss anything?

The canal trail deals only in bicycle & pedestrian traffic and little of the hazards of street congestion. A ride can include a look at Snowy White Egrets, Mallard Ducks, Red Tail Hawks, Turkey Vultures, squirrels, Otters and in season the occasional rattlesnake. The views...More
