As a part of our Sunol Regional Wilderness Loop Hike (8.5 miles), we started at the Indian Joe Creek Trailhead, then we turned to Canyon View Trail, continued onto Camp Ohlone Road, Geary Road, Backpack Road, McCorkle Trail, Eagle View Road, Cave Rocks Road and finally returned to Indian Joe Creek Trail to complete the loop. This hike was an 8.5-mile loop hike (4.5 hours) with a total ascent of 1,900 feet. The scenery was fantastic, and great workout too. Definitely will be back in the Spring.

We hike the Indian Joe Creek Trailhead in middle of November. The scenery was beautiful.

Really enjoyed doing the hike but the highlight to this one was getting off in the creek near Little Yosemite and scrambling over the large granite boulders in the dry creek bed. I always wanted to do the backpacking hikes in Sunol but never made the time.

Loved this trail and feeling high up. Felt like some trial maintenance along the way would have helped. Watch out for Mama cows. Sometimes they don't want to clear the trail for you to get by. Altogether, a great hike. We'll be back!

Nice trail with the creeks and the rocks to scramble through a bit on the creeks. Kids would enjoy this one.

Very nice trail with beautiful views, plants, and cows. About 6 miles total from the parking lot. Wear pants to avoid scratches from plants when the trail narrows. Highly recommended, one of my favorite hikes in the Bay Area.

1. strenuous trail but the slopes are not very steep., so only the distance will be killing.
2. pl note there is not much shade and so you would get a lot of afternoon sun if you are day hiking;
3. water is available at the visitor center; there is a tap with untreated water but its untreated, so you need to be preapared for that; Other detours to go for potable water may add to the already long distance, so we didn't try that.

Beautiful views. We went in March and the scenery was spectacular!

Definitely bring lots of water as it's mostly uncovered. The hike is gorgeous with its sweeping hillside. Speaking of which there's a quarry close enough to see and hear that's taken down a hill face. Unfortunate it's right on the border of the national park. The creek/falls itself are accessible by car and that means visitors that aren't accustomed to leave-no-trace ethics. I brought a garbage bag and carried out about 15 water bottles, trash, 6 pieces of clothing, a baby towel and a soccer ball out of the creek only within a hundred foot span. This is devastating to the environment. Other than that, this trail is lovely and may need to be closed to give it some time to recover human interference.
