Hiked counter-clockwise it is a moderate trail with a mostly gradual incline. The opposite direction might be considered difficult for the somewhat steep early incline up to Mine Hill via the Deep Gulch trail. Plenty of shade as well as some exposed parts make it a nice mix. Truly enjoyed this hike on a cool winter day

Great loop! Walk alongside Guadalupe Creek, views of the Reservoir going up. Going down on Mine trail had great views of Almaden Valley. This trail was mostly shady in afternoon.

I just started mountain biking 2 months ago. The incline is definitely a challenge but it's all worth it when you go back down. I only made it up 1 mile next time I'll do better.

Kinda steep all at once & go after 2 for shade. But the mine and views. Oh and the the trail gets uncomfortably small for about a mile

Ran 10.94 miles. Challenging but lots of fun. Made one wrong turn but it was easy to get back on track.
