Shoreline At Mountain View



Welcome to Shoreline At Mountain View, with its unique history, wildlife, habitats and wide variety of outdoor activities. The 750-acre wildlife and recreation area with it’s beautiful setting by the San Francisco Bay has gorgeous views of the mountains to the west and east across the bay. Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, Shoreline At Mountain View first opened to the public in 1983 and is now open 6:00 a.m. until 30 minutes after sundown, seven days a week.

Spend some leisure time golfing, sailing, windsurfing or flying a kite. Take in the rich local history of Rengstorff House and its gardens or observe the abundance of wildlife along the miles of trails available for jogging, hiking and biking.


The Friends of Stevens Creek Trail's annual event, the Trailblazer Race, is a fun and healthy activity for the whole family.  This year, due to uncertainty around the ongoing pandemic, they are holding a Virtual Race to ensure participants' safety. Register now to take part during the 16-day race window: September 11-26. Join in any time, anywhere.

You can run a 5k or 10k route and upload your time to compare with your past selves or other runners. There's one registration fee per person regardless of how many events you complete; you can upload as many run times as your like during the race window - or simply take a more leisurely 3 mile (5k) walk!  (Walk times cannot be uploaded.) Visit the Friends' website for more information and to sign up.

The Trailblazer Race raises community awareness and essential funds allowing the Friends to promote community involvement and pride in the completion, enhancement and enjoyment of trails and wildlife corridors in the Stevens Creek watershed, including within Mountain View. Your support is greatly appreciated.
