Facilities

A great West Valley paved path/trail for biking, mountain biking, jogging, and birding. A good starting point from Campbell Park the paved trail extends through Vasona Park, Downtown Los Gatos, and on to Lexington Reservoir and more challenging dirt road mountain bike climbs. Los Gatos Creek and ponds along the way offer good birding opportunities. The paved path makes a 2 mile loop from Campbell park to a pedestrian bridge at San Thomas Expressway. The east side of the loop has a 1 mile single track trail good for a quick mountain bike ride any time of the year.

Lots of parking in the nearby shopping center

I wish I read Prianka’s note. Don’t use the directions. It stopped while I was still on hwy 17. Otherwise nice hike.

HikingGreat!

Maps takes you to point in the middle of nowhere as trailhead. Drive to Lexington Reservoir and then follow the trail map. Great hike with gradual elevation gain. Beautiful view specially ~800 feet

HikingGreat!

I made sure to follow the map on here from the start, so because of this it made me realize if I went the opposite way I would’ve had to go up some VERY long steep hills so beware of this. If you follow the direction of the arrows, the hike isn’t so bad with some smaller more tolerable steep hills. It was a great workout!

very crowded and because of that walking a pet is not very pleasant. I would not go there again. there are also bikes going very fast and I think it's a disaster waiting to happen.
