Los Gatos Creek

The western reach of the trail extends from Meridian Avenue, travels through Campbell and Los Gatos to reach Lexington Dam.

Description
The trail system follows the waterway along both reaches.  The west San Jose 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.
