Walking the Walk

      (Level 2.5 - Miles: 6 - Elevation 800' - Host: Rick B.) 

We will meet at the Los Gatos Creek Bridge on Main Street, Los Gatos. From there, we will take the Los Gatos Creek Trail up to the dam at Lexington Reservoir for approximately 1.8 miles. We will then cross the Dam to the Jones Trail Head across from the parking lot. The first portion of the trail is semi-paved and very steep for about .15 miles then gives way to moderately steep, well groomed fire road. We will then turn right on to the Manzanita Trail and follow it for another 1.2 miles. Total distance is approximately 6 miles. the terrain is mostly groomed fire road.
