This scenic parkway meanders along Coyote Creek for 15 miles. The north portion features a paved multi-use trail popular with bicyclists, rollerbladers, and hikers.

Nice and easy paved path. The entrance fee to park is $6 per vehicle and machine only seems to take a credit/debit card. The trail is nice with a good lake view. Not a lot of views in second half with running past lots of buildings. Great for dogs.

Dirty, bunch of homeless tents... Went there with my kids did not feel safe at all. I don’t know how other reviewers are stating clean and maintained? Moving on to the next location in Los Gatos

All paved trail. Started from the stagging area off Silver Creek Valley Road. Walked north to Hellyer Park. Trail was flooded 1.5. miles in. and about 1 miles south of Hellyer Park. Creek water very active from Anderson Dam and interesting. Enjoyed the time however. It's a good trail to do with friends. Quiet and peaceful. Lots of signs of wild boars feeding but no sign of the so not to worry ...just interesting to see. Hills are beautiful and green now (March).

I have completed this section of the trail on my bicycle, it is a really pretty section of coyote creek trail in my opinion. Great city trail section for walking, running or paved bike riding but pretty heavy trafficked whenever I have gone, so be aware to look out for people jogging if you are on your bike.

Well maintained, clean, and fairly quiet early in the day.
