The trail system follows the waterway along both reaches.  The west San José reach that extends to Lexington Reservoir is very popular on weekdays and weekends.  Shopping and dining in Campbell and Los Gatos make it possible to spend a day exploring the trail.  



1.9 miles from San Carlos Street to Lonus Street (within San José)
9.3 miles from Meridian Avenue to Lexington Dam (within San José, Campbell, Los Gatos, and the County)
