Belwood of Los Gatos, Belgatos, Surmont

At the far eastern edge of Los Gatos sits a welcoming neighborhood with three contiguous subdivisions: Belwood of Los Gatos, Belgatos, and Surmont. Adjacent to them is the stunning Belgatos Park and connected to it an expansive network of trails for people on foot, bike, or horseback (the Heinz Open Space Preserve plus the Sierra Azule and Shannon Valley trails, also nearby). At Blossom Hill Road and Harwood there is a friendly Walgreen’s, a Starbucks, a Valero gas station and mechanic, and many other worthwhile destinations.

Belwood of Los Gatos with the Belgatos and Surmont neighborhoods For many Los Gatans, all three of these east Los Gatos areas (and sometimes a broader one still) are generally referred to as “Belwood of Los Gatos” or “Belwood-Belgatos.” (The Los Gatos Monte Sereno Police cert map identifies the whole region plus the Strathmore neighborhood, which is across Blossom Hill Road, as “Belwood” generally.)

The terrain is nearly level, with very low, gentle hills over most of the area. With winding, mostly tree-lined roads and tidy houses, it’s a very attractive neighborhood overall. For those looking for an arduous climb on foot or bike, though, Harwood Road provides a nice challenge. At the top, you’ll see a fantastic view of downtown San Jose and Silicon Valley for your trouble. (There are some challenges to be found in the open space trails, too.)

Belgatos Park and the trails that connect to it are a big plus. It  is located at 330 Belgatos Lane (at the end of Belgatos Road, off Blossom Hill Road) in east Los Gatos. It features a playground, hiking trails, open fields, picnic areas, fabulous views and restrooms.
