  • Very picturesque and scenic trail. The trail is barbed so can't go really close to water. It always gets cold because of the fog and trees. Bring a jacket even if it is really sunny. The trail is narr...  more »

  • Asphalt paved trail for biking, jogging or walking. Mostly flat wide path with benches located along the several mile trail. A couple of restrooms available. Beautiful scenic views, wildflowers and wildlife are all here. On a 5 mile walk, I saw deer, rabbits, ducks, songbirds, hummingbirds, hawks, vultures, squirrels, frogs, a snake, various insects and hundreds of wildflowers.
  • This is a pretty trail for biking or jogging. Mostly flat with a small hill at the north end of the trail. The trail used to be very popular and crowded on weekends, but construction over the last several years closed the main road to the southern trailhead and also closed the main parking lot. Now days, the trail is far less crowded. Construction is supposed to take several more years. If you're biking to the trail, watch out for construction trucks on weekdays on Crystal Springs Road.
  • Lovely trail with great views. Some benches on the way if you need a breather. Bathrooms available at the start of the trail.
  • Great place to walk or bike away from car traffic. Trail gets steeper near the San Andreas lake dam. Can connect to the San Andreas trail at Hillcrest and 280 for an even longer walk/ride. The first mile or so of the San Andreas trail is unpaved and closed to bikes so bikers have to cross under the freeway to the east and then back under the freeway again at the next crossing. There is a sidewalk beside that road so you don't have to mix with the cars coming on and off the freeway.
  • Paved road, great for winter (after rain) hikes. Saw lots of deer. Really nice trail.
