Santa Clara County Parks is charged with planning and implementation of the Countywide Trails Master Plan, an element of the Parks and Recreation Section of the County General Plan, which envisions a comprehensive network of over 800 miles of regional, sub-regional, and connector trails throughout Santa Clara County. Although responsibility for the actual construction and long-term management of each individual trail varies, County Parks provides general oversight and coordination of the overall trails system.
The following links provide information on trails planning and development for regionally-significant trails. Trail Plans for specific parks within Santa Clara County's park system can be found on the Find a Document, Plan, or Project by Park page.
