San Tomas Aquino/Saratoga Creek Trail, Reach 3, is moving toward completion, with an official opening in June, if all goes according to plan. It extends south from Scott Boulevard to Monroe Street in Santa Clara.
This is fantastic news for anyone who rides a bike. The path follows the creek all the way to Highway 237, going under all roads, including Highway 101, making for a swift commute in a bucolic setting. Considering that most bike riding in Silicon Valley requires a stop every quarter- to half-mile, there is no better place to ride.
As the opening date nears, I’ll keep checking to see when the path opens, and let you know.
