Spending too much time in your car on commutes? Thinking of moving closer to work? Mountain View makes it easy to enjoy more time outdoors, whether during the work-week or on the weekends. Mountain View is a Bicycle Friendly Community and offers extensive bikeways and trails for safe, fun rides around our city.
Did you know? Downtown bike maps, lockers and bike shelter at the downtown Mountain View Transit Center can be obtained from the Public Works Department. One of our favorite trails for an easy ride is Stevens Creek Trail, which is currently open from Shoreline at Mountain View to Sleeper Avenue, located south of El Camino Real.

According to the City of Mountain View – ” The 4.8 mile section paved all weather pathway contains 6 undercrossings, 5 pedestrian bridges, a major 1/4 mile overcrossing structure that spans Central Expressway, Evelyn Avenue, light rail and the Caltrain tracks and a 350 foot pedestrian/bicycle overpass spanning Highway 237. 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, Cal Train 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.”
