Enjoy an easy stroll along this urban creek path before or after visiting downtown shops or restaurants. Although Arroyo Del Valle no longer supports a healthy population of migrating steelhead trout as in previous times, there is still a lot of wildlife to observe, including water birds and fish.
Recommended access point: Main Street Bridge, Pleasanton
Activities: Walking, jogging, biking
Insider Tip: For a longer run, walk or bike ride, connect Arroyo del Valle Trail with Arroyo de la Laguna Trail and further to Alamo Trail or Arroyo Mocho Trail. Bicyclists can continue east on Arroyo Mocho Trail all the way to Livermore, passing Shadow Cliffs Regional Recreation Area.
