Yes, we have a new look.

Welcome to the City of San José's new digital front door!

Guadalupe River


"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 José - making this a great nine-mile opportunity to discover and learn about San José 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 Downtown San José (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


The Guadalupe River Trail is a core trail system within San José's trail network. Once fully developed, it will extend about 20 miles and link the San Francisco Bay to south San José.

The downtown portion of the trail system is within the 250-acre Guadalupe River Park with many points of interest.


  • 9.0 miles along northern/central reach (Gold Street to Virginia Street)
  • 2.4 miles along southern reach (Chynoweth Avenue to Coleman Road)
