Great trail with a variety of different little trail off shoot options. Lot's of wild life out on early morning hikes (Deer, Coyotes, Wild Turkey's, Skunks & Birds). Several different benches and picnic tables to utilize for push ups or to relax and enjoy the view. Cool Mt. Diablo sunrise views. Much more scenic in the winter. Caution: With the clay type dirt, when it rains, it gets real slick real quick. Recommend hiking poles in wet conditions.
Mt. Wanda was muddy! but it was gorgeous. We started the day a little late to avoid hiking under a heavy rain. I had my poncho ready but I guess some people just don't hike in rain... The views were good. The climb was nice. The weather improved and cooperated the rest of the morning.
