    Thank you for repaving the Alameda Creek Trail. Please pave the the section of trail from the Dumbarton Bridge over pass to the Coyote Hills Loop.

  • Is there anything else you would like to share about your current trail usage?

    I recently rode my bike around the south bay. I did not come in contact with cars until I reached the south end of Fremont by the Milpitas dumps. It would be nice if I could ride my road bike the whole loop without riding with cars.

    The section that connects the Dumbarton to the Coyote Hills Loop Trail. Please pave it.
    The frontage road along the Dumbarton Bridge. 3 miles of bad road on a bicycle.

  • Is there anything else you would like to tell us about new or improved trails you would like to see in Fremont?

    I recently rode by bike around the south bay and did not encounter cars until I got to South Fremont. It would be nice if there was a trail that connected to the Alameda Creek Trail that did not involve riding with cars.
