To bypass the flooded section of trail, add about 500 feet to your trip by detouring via ECR and Yuba Drive. The trail crossing under ECR remains open.

A soil engineer will evaluate bank erosion the week of January 15, 2017 to determine trail stability and next steps. Until then, the closure timeline is unknown.

Visit the city of Mountain View, CA for updated trail status.

You see flooding status for Santa Clara County trails here. I recently added Penitencia Creek where it passes under I-680 in the city of San Jose, CA; and the Stevens Creek Trail under Hwy 101 in Mountain View.
