Los Gatos Creek Trail: Out-and-Back Map

The Los Gatos Creek Trail is a lengthy paved greenway trail running through the San Jose metro area. This trail is extremely popular with road cyclists (both recreationally and for commuting), but walkers/hikers, runners, skaters, and more all use this trail.


The route shown here is a 20.4-mile out-and-back route beginning not far from downtown San Jose and running to the Lexington Reservoir and back. This is a popular road cycling route, but it can also provide a great long-distance running option. You can also walk or run a much shorter route, beginning from any number of access points along the trail, or simply turn around whenever you desire.
