About San Jose Trails
San Jose has one of the nation's largest urban trail networks, with over 50 miles developed and open to the public.  Learn about the vision and goals that guides all development.  

The network of trail systems offers a wide variety of experiences.  Core trails like the Guadalupe River, Coyote Creek and Highway 87 Bikeway extend a long distance and provide an opportunity for both recreation and commuting.  Edge trails like Albertson Parkway and Upper Silver Creek provide access to nature and open space for recreation. Trails like the Silver Creek Valley system offer challenging inclines and valley-wide views.

The City's Greenprint, General Plan, Bike Plan and Green Vision all support further development; with a goal for a 100-mile paved trail network by 2022.  This mileage is to be developed upon 35 defined trail systems.  Extending existing trails, closing gaps and interconnecting trails are a key objective for development so that travel can occur entirely within an off-street environment.
