Shoreline At Mountain View is home to an eight-mile network of trails, bridges and roadways for walking, jogging, biking and inline skating. Vista Slope and the nearby Crittenden Hill provide expansive vistas as well as open space for exploring outdoors. The popular Stevens Creek Trail originates in Shoreline and travels creekside nearly five miles through Mountain View. The multi-use Permanente Creek Trail extends from Shoreline At Mountain View over Highway 101 to Old Middlefield Road. Many Shoreline trails connect with other regional trail systems, including the Bay Loop Trail.
