The trail is inside a large park called Sunnyvale Badlands Park. Put that in your maps app and let the little voice guide you. $6 per vehicle. Lots of easy parking. Clean restrooms several playgrounds. Great for kids. Vending machines for soda and water only....More

I used the address provided here and ended up in front of a commercial building with no signs of where the trail might be. I additionally used Google Maps which put me in some insane driving loop that never got me near any trail. Along...More

I walked out on the levees not knowing what to expect but was pleasantly surprises. There were egrets, falcons, mallard ducks, wild artichoke plants, and more in a beautiful setting along the bay. Highly recommend if you want to take an easy 3 mile walk.

If you're tired of dealing with cars, try this ride. Not meant for racers due to the pedestrian traffic, but still not so crowded that it's hard to ride. Very gentle elevation changes are ideal for all you fixed-gear riders out there.

Great area for walking, but everything looks so dry to the drought we're having in California. Wish things looked greener.
