This is a long, unbroken route used for travel from central San Jose all the way out of the city. It provides little challenge outside of general cardio. Being a multi-use path there are plenty of pedestrians also on the trail.

If you like this, you can connect to Limekiln Trail or Priest Rock Trail trails in the Sierra Azul Open Space Preserve.
