I’ve gone the whole way on this trail a couple of times. But plenty of times just within the San Jose area. The scenery is very nice. Plenty of shady areas to stop and rest that aren’t too far apart from each other. Trail mostly follows along the 101 freeway between Morgan Hill and San Jose. A couple of mildly difficult inclines but otherwise very manageable. Enjoyed many times within San Jose with my family.

Real nice from Hellyer County Park and south. Do not go or park north of Hellyer park, as there are nothing but homeless camps, garbage, thugs, and people who look like they’re looking for trouble. A real sanitation nightmare, too. Think twice before bringing a family member who you care about in this section.

South of Metcalf road, only saw a dozen or so people, was a nice walk in the sunshine!

A beautiful trail to nurture the soul and exercise the body just in our backyard!

I run part of this trail every Saturday for the last 2 years. The trail is well kept, clean, shaded and pleasant year round. If anything, I hope they install more water fountains along the trail. There are two that I know of: one near Hellyer Park, and another. Near the 85 freeway.

The trail is nice but the surrounding area is super sketchy. Lots of tent cities and crazy homeless people along the trail and parking area. I did not feel safe here.

Worst experience with the directions of this app.
The map'd address from this app on my cell phone put me atlas 7 miles away from the target.
I never would trust the app and its directions for a trail that I do not know how to go.
This is second time it is happened to me.

I've walked this trail many times. It's a great place to jog and walk with strollers. It's nice to have the mile markers.

Great easy bike ride especially if you're pulling a kid trailer. Some cute picnic spots with tables. We even saw people fishing.
