Beware Canadian Geese

Nice morning walk, pretty trees and very flat. Would do it again.

Beautiful trail to watch the sunset.

I’ve been part of this trail in Shoreline Park Mountain View. It’s relaxing but a bit windy.

So much nature! Can't wait until Google Lens comes out so I can use it on this trail for identification.

Beautiful but stinky at time due to waste management/water recycling plant.

Newly surfaced (high quality clay), well maintained. Beautiful view of bay. Binocular stations along trail. Very quiet and pretty solitary. Mostly bikes. Stench near Sunnyvale sewage treatment plant can be pretty overwhelming at times, particularly in the mid- to late-afternoon when wind picks up. Best conditions in the morning. Lots of wildlife (many species of birds; hares, etc.). Connects with Stevens Creek Trail. No water or bathrooms from Stevens Creek Trail to Twin Creeks Park (Sunnyvale).

I was expecting to see the wetlands by looking at the pictures and it was all dry

Recycling plant and trash facility located nearby, but the smell is largely from the fact that it is a marshlands. So you will smell a lot of Sulfur and stretches of this trail. Especially in the hotter seasons.

Easy to navigate. Good riding conditions. Wonderful trail!

mmmehh... not a very nice trial. view of bay waters is ok but trails doesn't take you out to it really. location is ok overall I would pick someplace else to hike.

Stinks, dry, radiation zone(radar)... awful place.

Hi Folks,

I am wondering anyone has measured the "larger" trail, sorry don't know how to describe this, I mean passing over the radar station and keep going on a curved trail then turn left, straight and then left again and back to the water gate then back to the water processing facility... :-)

Dog friendly, gravel but lots of ducks and Hawks. Also we saw a Great Blue Heron. We biked it, strong breeze but no smell or flies...maybe late Oct is better time of year.

Decent option for a walk or run at sunset - was convenient to a stay in Sunnyvale.

Biked this fora year and loved it. It does stink. Flat ground mostly.

Not so pleasant, as the sewage treatment plant is right there!

The trail is a gravel road and while it is a nice little hike, there's not much to look at. The best part is walking up the steep hill near the parking lot and taking in the view. Trail is not labeled so ask other people on the trail how long different loops are. Some are just a couple miles and others are longer (6+ miles).

I have used this trail for biking, jogging, hiking, and birding. On the weekends it can get very crowded, but during the week there are less people and you can get better wildlife photos. These trails interconnect with the shoreline bike paths so you can go as far as you like.
