This trail is a really nice idea for the middle of urban mania. If it wasn't for many locals who have no courtesies or class while bicycling way too recklessly on it, it would be a perfect place for walking, running, etc.

Did a 5K here around the park, it is really pretty and lots of spots to picnic or just sit by the lake. The race was really fun and even with that going on the park was not crowded.

I go there twice a week to get relaxed and exercise. An hour walk at this trail will definitely add some time to your life span... Manicured trail becomes picture perfect with accompanying view of the mountains, creek, trees, lawn and the people enjoying it....More

The Los Gatos Creek is in need of some TLC. It has become a dumping ground for human produced waste. Plastics, bottles of various sorts, rags, old mattresses, etc. that are obvious when the water is low. Makes the beautiful trail a lot less attractive...More
