While the resorts in the Lake Tahoe area would argue otherwise, Northern California has enjoyed beautiful December weather. The area has been bathed in sunlight and the days are crisp and clear. A great way to enjoy the region’s Winter weather anomaly is to experience it via the Los Gatos Creek Trail.

Spanning from Lexington Dam to downtown Campbell — and running over nine miles in length — the trail allows anyone who enjoys experiencing a tranquil setting to do so on foot. And footspeed is entirely up to those who embark upon a hike, run, ride or a leisurely stroll. Bicycle enthusiasts range from those with slower riding bikes replete with toddler seats to those who look ready to brave the mountain stage in the Tour de France.

The same goes for those on foot. There is plenty of room on the trail for casual walkers to those who are prepping for the NYC Marathon (or, closer to home, the Resolution Run on New Year’s Day).

No matter the commitment to fitness the trail enthusiasts may have, all can agree on one thing: there is something on the trail for everyone. There are flat stretches, hills, meandering curves and views that almost make Silicon Valley seem like a world away. Perhaps it’s the incessant sound of water rushing over rocks or down spillways that soothe the trail’s visitors in both body and mind. The lush trees and mountain views don’t hurt, either.

With rain not in the forecast for at least a week, there is still plenty of time to enjoy the precipitation-free weather and the clear blue skies. And one would be hard pressed to find a better way to do it than getting in a cardio workout based in one of Los Gatos’ loveliest settings.
