overall I gave it three stars but if you want to use it purely as a running trail I probably give it 4 stars because it's very flat and it's a loop so you can just jog the 2.3 miles or you could double up or triple up.

I went about 4 p.m. on July 29th so I guess that would be at the top of the heat part of the day. I never said I was bright. especially since I'm definitely a heat wimp. The Highway 17 side of the trail is about 90% sun exposure so that's not terribly fun. The glare of the sun sometimes affects your ability to look into the creek. There is also a lot of overgrowth blocking some views. But there are sections where the creek is more opened up and it's very relaxing to watch. Not a ton of nature stuff going on given that it's a pretty heavily trafficked Trail. But I saw a squirrel, doves, ducks, goose, and one Heron flying right over the creek. The return stretch back to the beginning on the other side of the creek is much nicer. I'd estimate 70% shaded to partially shaded. this was my first look at this loop trail. I think there's a good chance I'm going to make it a routine running trail for me. I suppose another nice thing about the trail is its location being so close to downtown Campbell. you're 2 minutes away from restaurants and coffee shops to take a breather after your walk or run.

Nice trail. Start and end point in downtown Los Gatos is a plus. Half of the trail is going alongside of the 17 freeway is a minus. Not very picturesque like Fremont Older or Ranch San Antonio, but very convenient.

I like that I can walk here for some exercise on my lunch break, it can be noisy from construction but I just put my headphones on

I live by the park that it goes through. The park is currently dominated by Pokemon Go players and a lot of them. The trail is really good for a run and if you go down to the creek it's very pleasant. There's stops on the way for exercises and it gives you helpful mile counters along the way. The lake on the right is no longer filled with fish. The lake on the left is however. I saw multiple fish but caught only 1
It's a nice walk that's paved all the way down and through Vasona park. Great for kids and dogs.
