This is my go to trail I go to whenever I have time, and need mental and physical space. I use the part from Main Street, Los Gatos up to Lexington, but there are a lot of other trails associated with this system. (Have also ridden the bike trail through Vasona, etc.) It can get busy on weekends, so aim... More

My running club trains here during the summer months. 10 mile trail passed Vasona Lake to Lexington Res. Mostly paved except the last 2.5 miles. Many inlets into the trail all along the 10 miles.

Wonderful accessible trail for all ages and abilities. Great seasonal viewing of wood ducks paddling in a gushing creek among rust and amber colored trees. Good off leash dog park setup. Runners, bike riders and dog walkers love this place that runs nearly 10 miles to Lexington reservoir.

We use this trail often and enjoy watching the seasonal changes in the creek. The trail is walker, bicycle and stroller friendly. It is a safe place for families to walk and bike together.

Very scenic. Nice walkway for people to jog or walk. Geese in the lake (reservoir). Beautiful trees. Easy to get to. Very very clean.

Very nice trail to walk alone, with others, or with your dog. Especially nice by the ponds and Vasona lake.

Started In Campbell rode through tule marsh, and mostly park like scenery, even when not on the trail. Some times there are homeless issues, but the police patrol this now, so you are safe, as any where in Silicon Valley. Ended at Vasona Lake park, been there dozens of times still love it.

I ran to the trail from my hotel. It was a perfect morning. The trail is very nice. Paved and for the most part flat. There is a trail on both sides of the creek with the occasional bridge. The trail is pretty popular. I also felt safe.

This trail is paved and well-maintained. It traverses through wooded areas and regional parks, along the babbling Los Gatos creek, past open spaces, and connects some lovely quaint towns. Along the way there are exercise stations, benches to sit for a spell, or stop in Vasona park and take a paddle boat ride or stop for a picnic. On weekends... More
