Jones Trail -> Los Gatos Creek Trail Loop Map

The Los Gatos Creek Trail is a lengthy paved greenway trail running through the San Jose metro area. However, the route shown here forms a more adventurous loop route by utilizing the Jones Trail.


The Jones Trail begins by ascending along an old fire road composed of crumbling asphalt. From there, the run follows progressively narrower paths at it winds along the mountainside, offering beautiful views in a serene woodland.

Eventually, the Jones Trail drops down to Los Gatos Creek, running downhill along the creek before crossing via a bridge. Once on the other side of the creek, the hike turns left on the paved Los Gatos Creek Trail to return uphill to Lexington Reservoir, where you began.
