San Jose Trail Updates: Mon 7/18 7pm WG Library



Learn more about the status of San Jose Trails at our next meeting tomorrow, Monday 7/18 7pm @ WG Library. Yves Zsutty, Trails Coordinator of the City of San Jose, on threats to trail continuity and land acquisition for the Three Creeks Trail. And Mike Flaugher, Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority, on the Ridge Trail.

More about trails closures and the annual trail report:

Los Gatos Creek Trail
The City of Campbell is repaving portions of the popular trail system. Per the attached map, they will need to close portions of the trail for 24 hour periods during August. Persons visiting the trail will find barricades that prevent access.

Coyote Creek Trail
The City of San Jose is expected to commence work to pave the trail system from Highway 237 Bikeway to Tasman Drive. We anticipate that work will commence on July 25 (estimated), with construction taking about 4 months. Persons that use the intersection Highway 237 Bikeway can continue to do so, but will lose direct access to Coyote Creek Trail during construction.

Penitencia Creek Trail (Noble to Dorel)
Construction work is occurring this summer to deliver a new section of trail near Alum Rock Park. There is currently no trail along the creek between Noble Avenue and Dorel Drive.

Coyote Creek Trail (Shady Oaks Fitness Trail)
A new 1.0-mile Fitness Loop will be linked to Coyote Creek Trail at the Shady Oaks Park pedestrian bridge in south San Jose (just north of Blossom Hill Road). There is no trail at the existing site (former orchard), so this is a new destination for trail users along the popular trail system.
