Guadalupe River
Location
"San Jose to the Bay"...the northern section of the Guadalupe River Trail extends from Alviso at southern edge of the San Francisco Bay to Downtown San Jose - making this a great 9 mile opportunity to discover and learn about San Jose and Silicon Valley.  

The Guadalupe River Trail system is currently developed as two disconnected trail systems.  The northern and central portions travel from the San Francisco Bay, through Silicon Valley and into DowntownSan Jose (linking Gold Street in Alviso to Virginia Street in southern downtown).  A southern portion of the trail system extends from Chynoweth Avenue to Coleman Road and leads directly to the Lake Almaden and Los Alamitos Creek trail systems
