Creek Trail Virtual Tour Highway 101 Underpass
Highway 101 is one
of the main arteries of Silicon Valley, and a major route between
Northern and Southern California. Eight lanes wide through Mountain
View, for years it was a barrier to foot and bicycle travel.
A tunnel now carries the Trail under the highway.
The Trail was built
into an existing tunnel originally built for Stevens Creek. On
rare occasions, usually in winter, this portion of the Trail
is closed if the Creek water gets too high.

underpass seen from the northern side. Stevens Creek is on the
other side of the fence.
