This is a paved bicycle, hiking and jogging trail connecting the community of Belmont with the Crystal Springs Trail. It extends from Ralston Avenue interchange with Highway 92 over I-280, across Canada Road to the Crystal Springs Trail.

The starting point for the track is back a driveway. It didn't seem like a legit place to park, but I didn't see any sign saying you couldn't. And there was another car there when I returned. So I guess it's ok. But the proper staging area is right off the highway exit. I took a picture of the correct starting point.

It's a play down and pay up kinda bike ride. I would prefer the opposite, but the path was very smooth and there were a lot of bikers out on it. I saw a lot of people biking along Cañada Road too if you want to keep going when you reach the bottom.
