New trails on Santa Clara County trail flooding page: Penitencia and Stevens Creek

Our recent drought-busting rains in the San Francisco Bay Area gave me enough good data to enable two additional trail segments on the Santa Clara County trail flooding information page.

Muddy Guadalupe River Trail January 2017

I added Penitencia Creek under I-680 in the city of San Jose, and Stevens Creek Trail in Mountain View underneath Highway 101. I also tweaked the predictive flooding algorithm for Los Gatos Creek Trail.

Thank you to Joey Rozier, who gave me information on Stevens Creek flooding and even posted video of a suggested detour. Stevens Creek doesn’t flood often, but when it does the detour can be substantial, so I hope knowing flood status ahead of time helps with planning.

Thank you also to my colleague Matt Murphy, who gave me flood information for Penitencia Creek.

  1. Thanks for this blog and the trail status page. The Guadalupe Trail was flooded last night under Julian. This morning the water had receded to about 3″ in the shallowest area. Wondering if our wonderful trail crews will remove the mud that the river deposited any time soon.
