The trail is relatively flat and paved. However, I decided to take a walk on the part that is fairly open and not a lot of trees. Sometimes there are bicyclists who do not actually use their bells or voice and try to run you...More

Trail was well marked and paved. I did a 6.5 mile run along the trail and liked how there was a pedestrian trail separate from a biking trail. I also liked how the section of trail I did was flat. Not the most beautiful scenery...More

Iron Horse Trail is great for bikes, walkers and runners of different levels. There is plenty of space to pass each other, the trail travels over several miles through multiple towns.

Unfortunately it was hot and sunny and I walked around the Dublin Blvd section. Looking back at it, I like to hike the northern part of the trail.

Maybe I didn’t give this five stars because I am not a big fan of biking, but even I thought this was very nice. It is a long trail taking you through the cities of the Bay Area. You can walk, run, bike, or skate...More

We hiked from Walnut Creek approximately 2 miles and back. Flat, paved, well maintained and friendly people. Liked it to return a day later. I do notice the more distance from Walnut Creek the less freeway noise. We are out of state visitors and find...More
