What a great place to walk. It seems really safe as many other people are sharing the trail with you. Biking can take you all around the valley, from flat to fairly steep trails. The view is beautiful at the top of the trail. Definitely recommend.

the trail is miles long, through quiet neighborhoods and peaceful country side. one can ride and ride as the trail is perfectly flat!

This is an asphalt walk behind people's back yards along an irrigation ditch. It's fine if you want to bicycle somewhere. But I wouldn't waste the time considering it a tourist attraction.

I walked with my dog everyday. it's beautiful , safe and clean. I walk on the pavement but I have also taken the dirt road in the hills. it's serene and the breeze feels delicious as it brushes you on the face on very hot days. you can see falcons, rabbits, birds and appreciate the views of the city and...

I walked with my wife, my son's sometimes, but mostly with my wife and our dog. what I like it's that we can combine with either riding our bikes, walking the hills or my kids jogging as well. it's relaxing and the people we encountered there are friendly. the walks are safe and the place clean

Doesn't matter if you are with/out kids, dog, solo this is a great place to walk/run/jog/cycle. Not the prettiest trail I have been on but has some lovely views of Mt Diablo and joins up with the Iron Horse Trail and I think several others. The connection with the Iron Horse Trail is important as that can take you to... More

This is one of the best trails in Contra Costa County. You can travel from Concord all the way the Pleasanton on this and its intersecting Iron Horse Trail. An estimate is about 30 miles total one way. The only criticism of the trail is that you have to cross many public streets which requires people with young kids to... More

The Contra Costa Canal Trail is one of my favorite urban trails, and I never pass up an opportunity to walk it. I like the looks of the canal, which is a very interesting piece of engineering, and I enjoy watching the people and the ducks. During my recent afternoon walk on the Pleasant Hill section of the trail I... More
