Repair work underway. Detour rerouted back on the street again.

Santa Clara Valley Water District has begun repair work that will be lasting through mid-November 2017. The Stevens Creek Trail Detour south of El Camino Real will be re-routed back onto El Camino Real and down Yuba Drive as it was earlier this year, immediately following the creek bank erosion. Here's a picture of that detour route.

If you didn't notice by looking though the fence by the detour at the hotel, a long section of the trail has now collapsed down into the creek corridor and further collapses threaten the detour and the large redwood trees next to it. An emergency was declared by the Santa Clara Valley Water District on August 22 to enable them to take immediate action to stabilize the bank and try to prevent further deterioration. In order to get equipment into the area for this work, the improved trail detour will be used, so must be closed to the public.

You can read more about the closure and see pictures of the collapse in the August 24th MV Voice article, Water District declares emergency for Stevens Creek Trail" and the the September 14th MV Voice article, "Fix on the way for crumbling creek trail".
Additional and updated information may also be available on the City of Mountain View's Trails page.
