Nice short walk. The start of the trail can only be reached via windy and scenic Redwood Road, which can be fun depending on what you're into. This trail offers a nice mixture of scenery. The grass valley portion goes through a more open area as the name suggests and then Brandon trail goes through a scenic tree line. So you will be out in the sun for half the time and in the shade for the other half. I passed one bicyclist and three other hikers so there is some light traffic along the trail. The far end runs adjacent to the Chabot bike loop. If you need to cut your hike short, you can cross over via Red Tail trail. Horses also frequent these trails, so watch your step!

The starting point was not very convenient to get to. It would have been better to start at the Grass Valley Road end. Not very scenic compared to other trails in the area.

I rated this Trail low because of all the horse poop, especially on the northern end by the horse ranch. The Goldenrod Trail was less traveled, probably because it's windy and hilly. I didn't encounter anyone on this section when I walked on a Saturday morning. The Branden Trail is nicer and more traveled. The trail felt safe and the people I met were friendly. I went after it rained the previous night and it was muddy, which is to be expected. There are better options for hiking in the area in my opinion and I don't plan to return.
