Niles Canyon is located within Alameda County between the Niles District of the City of Fremont and the unincorporated community of Sunol. The Niles Canyon Trail Project proposes to install a six-mile long pathway that is 10 feet wide and is intended to accommodate pedestrians, bicyclists, and equestrians. When completed, it will link the communities of Sunol and Niles, and offer a critical link to Palomares Road, bypassing State Route 84. The trail will connect with the popular Alameda Creek Trail that offers further connection to the 500-mile San Francisco Bay Trail.
