  • This walking/bike trail is convenient with several access points, easy to manage even for kids, and offers stunning views of San Francisco Bay, the surrounding mountains, and waterfowl. It also leads ...  read more »
  • Nice walk / bike path to the bay. Can get very crowded on weekends, with fast bikes zooming past slow walkers. 
  • I have biked and walked many times on this trail. It is relatively flat except for bridges that serve as overpasses. Wide enough to walk side by side with someone and still be out of the way of oncomi...  read more »
  • Amazing North - South connection in Mountain View. This is an uninterrupted route for the entire length of the city. It ends at the Bay Trail so you can go keep going as far as you want. Some people park on Heatherstone, the southern end of the trail, and ride north until they feel like turning around. There are also spots along the trail with some shade, but it's mostly exposed to the sun. This trail is very busy with commuters during morning and afternoon commute times. Stay to the right unless passing and you will be fine. There are also some blind corners so watch out for oncoming trail users. The overpasses could be slightly steep for beginners so consider walking bikes up and down.
  • This is an wonderful, paved, and wide biking and jogging trail following Stevens Creek, with beautiful natural scenery and lots of places to sit down and rest. The trail has cool overpasses and tunnels going over the 101 and 237, and is not crowded at all during the morning or evening. It's a great commute route to Google's campus and a very viable alternative to driving: the trail is quite flat, and, compared to the roadways, has no traffic or lights at all! It's very safe for biking and is well maintained and smooth. I'd highly recommend taking your bike out to enjoy the trail, or consider biking to work using this path.
  • Well maintained trail popular with commuters. Fully paved, so you can use wheels of all sizes (rollerblading is my preference).
  • Great trails, but horrible for walking when people get off work. There's too many bikes zooming past. Then there are a few inconsiderate people who think bikes have the right-of-way.
  • Great trail for riding and jogging whether for leisure or commute. The only annoying part is that when jogging you need to watch out for occasional careless (and inconsiderate) cyclists who treat the trail as their own personal highway.
