Description: Today’s route is basically flat. We begin heading south on Boscom Ave on the sidewalks and then get on Los Gatos Creek Trail (asphalt), which takes us through some beautiful parks all the way to Los Gatos downtown. Then it’s just a short walk up to St Mary of the Immaculate Conception Church where we will spend the night. The route is safe for families and there are plenty of places for water and rest stops along the way. It’s typically pretty hot in the valley; dress accordingly.
Accommodations: St Mary of the Immaculate Conception: 219 Bean Ave, Los Gatos. We will sleep on the parish hall floor. Church bathrooms and pop up showers will be available.
