Best Cycling Trails of Sunnyvale – Explore California

Sunnyvale, home to Silicon Valley, is home to the best attractions in California. Look forward to exploring the thrills of Santa Clarita, shopping in Santana Row San Jose, and entertainment at Shoreline Amphitheatre. But the best experience will be on these top cycling trails of Sunnyvale.


San Tomas Aquino Creek Trail

This is an easy trail, owing to the flat surface and low traffic. The San Tomas Aquino Creek loop trail is 20.3km in distance. It comes recommended for cyclists of all levels. The trail is popular for biking as well as running and walking. Enjoy the scenery and sights of varied waterbirds as you relish the fresh breezes and wide-open skies. The well-paved trail is a favourite amongst bikers. If you plan to explore the best trails in Sunnyvale, choose your accommodation well. The Domain Hotel Sunnyvale amongst the popular lot in Silicon Valley is only 10 minutes from the trail. And apart from easy access, it is amongst the list of top Silicon Valley hotels in Sunnyvale CA.


Sunnyvale Baylands Park Guadalupe Slough

This loop trail is 9km long. You will experience heavy traffic on this path; however, it is one of California's best bike trails for viewing the exotic wildlife there. Ideal for cyclists of all skill levels, the trail offers a range of activities along the way. Enjoy cycling along the shores of the wetlands, and your front seat view of wildlife there. The trails along the shore are well-paved, offering easy access for kids and wheelchairs. This is another trail that's easy to access from your California hotel.


Bay Trail Sunnyvale

This is a lovely scenic trail that kids too, would enjoy. Avoid the low tide times if you want to avoid the unpleasant smells of the wetlands when exposed. Mountain bikes are the best recommendation for tackling the dirt trail and are ideal if you want to avoid damage to your more expensive bicycles. However, despite the rough trail, the views are stunning, and you should go there with your camera in tow. The area is quite windy and hardly very busy even on the weekends.


San Francisco Bay Trail

This is another easy trail to attempt with the kids. Again, this too is a rough trail and must be attempted on tough or old bikes. The part of the expansive San Francisco Bay trail, which makes its way across Sunnyvale, is on a flattened-out garbage dump, that forms the hill. The views are breathtaking while the trail is quite windy but one of the easiest for even toddlers to enjoy.


Stevens Creek Trail

This is a lovely long trail and ideal for a leisurely ride. You will love the fresh open spaces and the stunning surroundings. Cycle your way across old towns and vintage landmarks. Stop by the lovely water fountains for a refresher and let the wide-open fields soothe your mind with their magnificent domes of the wide-open sky. You can start the trail from the shoreline of Mountain View.
