The Centennial Trail is a walking path that follows the Arroyo de la Laguna. This unpaved path connects several parks, and is a great way to navigate through Pleasanton.

I run on this trail all the time. Lots of dog walkers, joggers, and bikes. Along 680 the trail is paved. The trail is parallel to drainage creeks so there are lots of birds and ducks. There is a pair of Blue Herons I often see, and the occasional fox.

Not a bad walk/run. All gravel and at parts runs parallel to interstate which means you hear the car noise. If your looking for flat in town perfect. If you're looking to get away from city noise and get in some hills, this is not for you!! Perfect for mnt bikes or hybrids, not for road bikes!

Not bad. It's a long, flat path that follows along the creeks. The surface is mostly gravel, but paved at some parts. The bridge was closed at Arroyo Mocho, blocking the path north toward 580. So I added some distance by going further east to make up for it. You can continue eastward along the middle trail until it intersects with Stoneridge.

The trail was lightly trafficked. I passed some joggers, walkers, dog walkers, and a couple of bikers. I biked the whole thing with my Trek 7.2 with trail tires.
