Los Gatos Creek Trail


The Los Gatos Creek Trail is made up of two disconnected pathways. It is 9.7-miles in length and serves as both a pedestrian, skating, and biking trail. It runs through the areas of western Santa Clara County from the Lexington Reservoir through Campbell into San Jose along the Los Gatos Creek. There are plans to join the Los Gatos with the Guadalupe River Trail. The Lexington to Los Gatos portion of the trail runs next to highways, water pipes, and electrical lines. The western side of the trail is smooth, while the eastern side is considered the Jones Trail and is connected to the Flume Trail. The north portion of this part of the trail is open only to pedestrians. There are mile markers located along the trail for those who want to keep track of their distance traveled. The trail runs into the downtown of Los Gatos, offering access at the Main Street Bridge. Travelers will pass the Forbes Mill history Museum and an area of Old Town that is a shopping district. This is a popular stopping destination for those taking a trip along the trail. Other prominent points along the trail include the Vasona Lake County Park, Los Gatos Creek County Park, access to downtown Campbell, the Pruneyard, and Willow Glen.
