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.

If you like to walk in a quiet trail, do that in a week day mid morning. The beginning of May was not too hot and the walk was peaceful. You have to watch out for doggie poops though because of unconsiderate dog walkers who...More

The canal is great place to bike, just watch out for dogs and walkers. Much safer than the street these days.

Easy walk with a few small gentle inclines and decent scenery. It follows the canal which adds a little scenery to the walk it ride.

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

What a truly great inner city trail that can be enjoyed on a bike, run or a walk. There is plenty of activity as the trail gets a lot of use. You will see people running, biking and walking so you are never alone. The...More
