Stevens Creek Trail

Stevens Creek Trail


Stevens Creek Trail is currently open from Shoreline At Mountain View to Dale/Heatherstone. The approximately five-mile section of paved all weather pathway contains six undercrossings, six pedestrian bridges, a major 1/4 mile overcrossing structure that spans Central Expressway, Evelyn Avenue, light rail and the Caltrain tracks, a 350-foot pedestrian/bicycle overpass spanning Highway 237 and the new overcrossing over Highway 85 from Sleeper Avenue to Dale/Heatherstone. The trail provides users multiple experiences through woodlands, tidal marshes and city neighborhood parks. In addition to bringing a unique creekside experience to urban residents and workers, the trail's easy connections to major bus routes, CalTrain and light rail make it ideal for connecting to the city's North Bayshore businesses. The trail is open from dawn to dusk. Dogs are allowed on leash from Sleeper Avenue north to the Crittenden Trailhead which is an entrance to Shoreline At Mountain View. Dogs are not allowed in Shoreline At Mountain View. Parking is available at the Crittenden Lane, La Avenida, Whisman, Landels and Yuba Drive Trailheads.
