Metcalf Motorcycle Park

Last Known StatusOpen

Conveniently located just minutes away from San Jose, this small motorcycle park offers about 20 total miles of marked and rated trails, hillclimbs, two motocross tracks and quarter midget tracks (ATVs are not permitted on some motocross tracks and black diamond trails).

All of the trails are one-way and most are geared toward novice riders, making this a great destination for families. The park also offers a riding and nature program that runs during the spring and fall for six weeks. The program is geared for kids between 9 and 12 years old and is free. For more information contact the park at (408) 226-5223.

The park is open year-round Thursday through Monday but may close on short notice due to inclement weather so be sure to call or check Facebook before heading out.
